Wittenberg's creative writing minor allows students to focus on fiction, poetry, screenwriting, playwriting and creative non-fiction with a community of writers that comes together to support each other throughout the writing process.
The study of creative writing is focused around two pillars: the audience and the craft of writing. You must read with a writer's eye, and you must hear feedback from your readers.
This commitment to craft and communication informs the workshop format featured in our creative writing classes. A community of writers comes together to talk about what they're reading - whether that's a great contemporary writer, a classmate struggling with the line breaks of a poem, or the stage direction of a play.
Every other summer, Wittenberg hosts the Summer Screenwriting Institute taught by faculty and award-winning alumni and friends. Past institutes have focused on writing for Hollywood, writing the documentary, and numerous other topics.
