Literary art of bringing words to life
Despite burgeoning tech designed to mimic human creativity, no one can write the way you do, be it a short story, poem or personal essay. Susquehanna University encourages, facilitates and celebrates your voice, vision and passion for the written word. Here, we listen. Here, you will hone your craft and uncover opportunities as teachers shepherd you to a new level of expression. Here, you will excel.
Immerse yourself in a creative community at Susquehanna that The Princeton Review has called “top-notch,” where poetry slams and late-night literary gatherings are regular events. You will refine your voice with thoughtful critiques and mentorship from our award-winning faculty, who are also published authors.
Susquehanna’s Creative Writing program offers ample publishing opportunities with five student-run publications to help you build your portfolio. You can also expand your professional network and poise yourself for growth by participating in special alumni events. Literary arts internships and Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center summer scholarships support your creativity as you develop your professional writing career. Plus, a senior seminar helps you land your post-college destination with confidence.
