Students in the creative writing program receive intense individualized and small group instruction in all aspects of writing, from the formulation of ideas to revising, publishing, and performing. Students participate in classes, workshops, field trips, and individual conferences with faculty members who are published authors. Students also read aloud their works-in progress, learn peer editing techniques, design and create their own chapbooks, and participate in several public readings. GSA writers meet and learn from a variety of visiting professional writers and guest artists.
