Creative Writing Minor

Creative Writing Minor

This 18-credit Creative Writing minor (CWRIT UMNR) offers students not majoring in English the opportunity to explore different forms of creative writing—fiction, poetry, and nonfiction—or to focus primarily on one of them. Students receive instruction and practice the art and craft of writing in small workshop courses.
