|Here, you’ll join a close-knit family of English language lovers. From the time you arrive on campus until you graduate, you’ll be guided by the same faculty advisor. You’ll enjoy small class sizes and amazing friendships with your fellow English majors. Our dedicated professors will get to know you. They will support you in your coursework, creative endeavors, internships, and post-graduate or career preparations. They will become personally invested in your success and will open doors for you.
As a creative writing major, you’ll take liberal arts courses and write across a wide range of genres like poetry, fiction, drama and creative nonfiction. In your fiction writing classes, you can write the kind of fiction you want to write, including the ability to focus on developing your craft in science fiction, fantasy, or horror, and learn from the author of the first textbook ever published on writing fantasy fiction.
You’ll also get the chance to write and to work on University publications, including Polaris, ONU’s undergraduate literary magazine and the Northern Review, ONU’s newspaper.
