The Old English term wordcræft captures the essence of the way in which English Department students and faculty work on creative, professional, and analytical writing. Instead of relying solely on the inspiration of a moment, writers at Marist develop their craft through practice, conversation, and revision. Careful reading plays a key role in this process; writers at Marist pay close attention to the way particular writers deploy the rhetorical tools at their disposal.
Extracurricular opportunities to write are similarly varied. Writers at Marist perform at poetry slams, conduct staged readings of one another's work, and present both their creative and scholarly work at national conferences. The craft of good writing emerges not through isolated effort, but through collaborative, playful, and thoughtful exchange with others.
Internships play a key role in introducing students to professional opportunities in writing and editing. The experiences of current and former students demonstrate the many venues in which students can pursue careers in publishing, magazine writing, and editing.
The English - Writing programme from Marist College includes not only the variety of courses offered by the English Department’s Concentration in Writing and Creative Writing and Professional Writings minors, but also the diverse array of student events and activities of interest to writers outside the classroom. This includes regular visits to campus by established writers in all genres, student readings, excursions to places of literary interest, and popular campus-wide events like the Red Fox Poetry Slam.
All Marist students are welcome to participate in Writing Program events, regardless of major. Student organizations like the Literary Arts Society and Sigma Tau Delta (English Honors Society) are active in planning many of these annual events, and they always welcome new members.
