Creative Writing Program
The undergraduate Creative Writing Program at Emory celebrates its 21st anniversary this year. Students approach the study of literature through their own creative writing, as well as by the more traditional method of critical analysis and reading. USA Today recently named Emory the number one school for "budding writers."
