When we write, we imagine new possibilities and bring them into existence.

Creative writing at Marlboro offers students a chance to grow as writers through intensive small-group workshops. Creative writing classes and tutorials foster a space of play and risk-taking in which students explore new styles and genres while writing about what matters most deeply to them. Courses like ‘Poetry is Not a Luxury’: Reading and Writing Poems that Matter and Creative Writing Explorations integrate reading and writing, inviting students to discover and learn from models that inspire them. Students of creative writing also learn how to respond to the work of others with rigor and empathy, how to ask questions and offer feedback that supports another writer’s vision.
