The undergraduate Creative Writing Program at Emory began in 1990. In this program, students can approach the study of literature in a creative way - through their own writing - as well as by the more traditional method of critical analysis and reading. Students may also pursue their personal interests and investigate specific genres, including poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, playwriting and screenwriting.
