The Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing & Literature is a 36-credit major with a curriculum that balances writing workshops and literary studies. This balance reflects the schools’s conviction that creative writing, reading, and critical analysis must be involved in a writer’s growth. In addition to the practice and study of writing, Writing and Literature students can acquire skills in letterpress printing through The Harry Smith Print Shop and publishing via Bombay Gin, the school’s literary journal. Through Project Outreach, students develop workshop-teaching skills in local schools and institutions.
Writing workshops and literature classes at Naropa University are taught by active writers with the purpose of deepening the students’ practice of writing. Writing & Literature majors produce creative work on a weekly basis throughout the academic year and engage in critical discussions on literature. Apply Now!
