Learn from fellow writers
The small class sizes at Camosun will allow you to work closely with creative writing peers and instructors in a workshop-like environment. Not only does this provide a built-in community of writers, but it also allows you to learn from your audience.
Make it professional
As a creative writing student, you will have a chance to submit to and edit a literary journal. You can gain hands-on experience with the editing and publishing process while at the same time earning course credit for CRWR 159.
Take the next step
Whether creative writing is a career goal or just a personal passion, you will be building useful skills. Not only are most CRWR courses transferable to institutions within BC, but creative writers are well positioned to work in publishing, journalism, advertising, marketing, or copy writing. Creative writing can also lead to professions in the entertainment or media industries.
