Overview

What You'll Learn

Our English Literature - Creative Writing at Agnes Scott College curriculum has introductory courses, advanced workshops, and independent studies in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and, in conjunction with the Departments of Theatre and Dance, dramatic writing and screenwriting. Creative writing courses combine the writing and revising of original works with critical reading of published texts. All courses conduct frequent workshops in which students learn to productively critique writing—their own and others. Many creative writing courses culminate in a public reading in which students perform the best of their writing for the campus community. 

You'll learn to:

  • analyze and interpret literary works and movements demonstrating knowledge of style, conventions, genre, and contexts with an understanding of process and form;
  • write with insight, proficiency and originality in at least two creative genres (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and dramatic writing);
  • respond to peers’ creative works with thoughtful criticism that supports the writer’s process of revision and incorporate thoughtful criticism in the process of revising creative work; and
  • apply understanding and knowledge gained from the study of literature and creative writing to other disciplines, problems, and contexts
