Creative Writing

Find Your Voice

Creative writing courses are an exploration of craft and imagination. By reading great works and discussing the techniques behind them, you will learn to hone your literary talents and expand your creative abilities. You can experiment with genres and discover your personal writing style.

Credit Courses

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.

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.

It's none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.
