The Creative Writing at the Stockton University seeks to provide its students with educational experiences that promote skills-based learning as well as the intellectual awareness and maturity that are the hallmarks of a liberal arts education.

Overview

Mission Statement

These are challenging days for those who teach literature and for those who study it. The old jusifications don’t seem terribly relevant and the new directions are clouded and unclear.

The Creative Writing at the Stockton University used to say that we should study literature because it made us more human, because it taught us about past lives and, if we thought long and hard about our texts, because it could show us how we might live our lives. The 20th century confronted us with individuals who, knowing the best literature and knowing the best art, did such memorable destruction to body and soul that they will never be forgotten or forgiven.
