When we write, we imagine new possibilities and bring them into existence.
Creative writing at Marlboro offered students a chance to grow as writers through intensive small-group workshops. Creative writing classes and tutorials fostered a space of play and risk-taking in which students explored new styles and genres while writing about what mattered most deeply to them. Courses like ‘Poetry is Not a Luxury’: Reading and Writing Poems that Matter and Creative Writing Explorations integrated reading and writing, inviting students to discover and learn from models that inspired them. Students of creative writing also learned how to respond to the work of others with rigor and empathy and how to ask questions and offer feedback that supported another writer’s vision.
