English: Creative Writing Program
Creative writing challenges, entertains, enlightens, and transforms – powers so potent authoritarians have tried to ban them from the earliest days of the written word. Major in creative writing at the University of Mary Washington and you’ll channel those powers as you develop your craft and build your body of original work. Become a more insightful reader and thinker as you gain the broad liberal arts and sciences knowledge to open a future without limits.
