In a world polarized through hatred and fear, well-written stories and poetry have the capacity to enlarge our compassion, sharpen our senses, and offer new visions for the future. Those who can write and tell stories well hold the keys to helping people, institutions, and businesses navigate a changing world. Creative Writing marries concrete, pragmatic skills with creative exercise and dreaming big. Becoming a better writer is not easy. It takes passionate, committed students to listen deeply, explore inquisitively, and inspire fiercely.
