Creative Writing Faculty

More than half the Writing Faculty are or have been editors of literary quarterlies, small presses, or established publishing houses. Thus instruction in the theory and practice of fiction, poetry, and the essay is augmented by the faculty's considerable knowledge of publishing, editing, and book preparation. Furthermore, all of the Writing Major faculty are currently publishing their own work in journals and in book form.
