Overview

Beyond the introductory Creative Writing course in which students write fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction, students take specialized workshops offered each term, as well as tutorials and independent studies. 

Learning outcomes

A number of Bard College at Simon's Rock graduates have gone on to great success in writing, and have published their own stories, poems, essays, novels, and biographies. Because the concentration affords students the opportunity to explore writing as a means of knowing, it serves very well those major programs that focus on literary studies, gender studies, theater, visual arts, and the social sciences. Creative writing can help students become better readers of their own work, of themselves, and of the world around them.
