Overview

In telling stories, we are able to explore the furthest reaches of experience – whether it’s our own, or someone else’s. And in this way, stories also carry the power to shape the world. 

In the Creative Writing (Online) program at Full Sail University , you’ll learn how to tell a tale across different media platforms, incorporating visual elements and exploring a variety of genres. 

You’ll examine different modes of publication and distribution, and hone your craft through ongoing portfolio courses and peer-to-peer workshops.
