CASA Creative Writing


    The creative writing program emphasizes the craft of writing as a literary art, a tool of self-expression and an instrument for social change. Students experience an intensive workshop environment in which they develop poetry, prose (fiction or creative non-fiction) and various forms of professional writing including journalism and public relations. Our creative writers gain hands-on experience with publishing through Genre, our student-run literary magazine, and they collaborate with other artists to develop performances, choreopoems or scripts for screen or stage. Published authors and media practitioners in the community serve as mentors to our students, while the city itself becomes inspiration as they hone their craft.
