Welcome, Class of 2021! We can’t wait to see you in workshops in the Program in Creative Writing this fall. We hold spaces open in introductory workshops for first-year students so that you can immerse yourself right away in the craft of creative writing by taking a small class (less than 10 students) with some of the most acclaimed writers in the world.
Michael Dickman, A.M. Homes, Jhumpa Lahiri, Joyce Carol Oates, Meghan O’Rourke, Kirstin Valdez Quade, James Richardson, Susan Wheeler, and Monica Youn are among the award-winning faculty teaching workshops open to first-year students. Graduating Princeton seniors often tell us they regret not taking CWR courses sooner in their undergraduate careers. Don’t delay what may be the best classroom experience you have at Princeton!
The Fall 2017 creative writing course application will open August 1st. The application consists of a short writing sample; please see the guidelines here. You can apply to one course only per semester.
If you’ve always wanted to study poetry but have never written a poem, just jump in and try it out: introductory classes are designed for motivated beginners.
