Creative Writing

School of Liberal Arts

About the Program

Do you see stories everywhere you go? Do words form patterns you just can’t wait to express? If you are a dedicated writer willing to work with your peers and professors to learn, revise, and expand your work, a certificate in creative writing from SFCC could be the beginning of a rewarding career.

The creative writing program is dedicated to students’ development in the three writing genres: fiction, poetry, and literary nonfiction. Your creative writing classes are taught by professional writers, and may include classes in book making and desktop publishing. There is also a magazine internship at the Santa Fe Literary Review and a portfolio class to complete a book-length manuscript. The program can even help prepare you to earn a bachelor’s degree in creative writing.
