Creative Writing Minor

DEEPEN YOUR UNDERSTANDINGS OF THE LITERARY LANDSCAPE

LCAD’s Creative Writing Minor will deepen your understandings of the literary landscape and the interconnectedness of the arts.

 

As a Creative Writing minor at LCAD, you will discover how powerful literature can be as both a written and spoken expression, and will learn firsthand the vital role that creative writing plays in our culture and in the growth of an individual. Each Creative Writing course offering reinforces cultural connections and our common humanity and enables you to discover that literature—both its creation and its study—is one of life’s greatest pleasures. By studying the work and craft of established authors, you will build a foundation for your original creative writing projects.
