Enhanced by on-campus writing opportunities and innovative summer programs, the creative writing minor encompasses many genres of writing.

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.
