Creative Writing Specialization

An Optional Specialization for Creative Media Majors

If it's a challenge for you to go through a day without writing—poetry, journal entries, blogs, impassioned emails or Facebook posts to friends—then the Creative Writing specialization could be a rewarding way to develop the practice.

This specialization is designed for students inspired to pursue their own artistic vision. You'll study the craft and discipline of writing, how writers have created their unique voice, world literature and personal and group performance at Champlain and beyond.

  • Pursue your artistic vision through your unique voice.
  • Study the craft and discipline of writing from writings of new and old.
  • Build your portfolio so that you can show the world what you can do.
