A companion for creative writing students.
Writers love to write about writing. So, it's our genuine pleasure to help introduce new and aspiring authors to the craft of creative writing and offer the guidance they need to get started down the path of self-expression–and a fulfilling career in writing.
And so we embarked on a bit of a trip of our own, setting out to create something that could serve as a useful companion to writing students at all stages of their own journeys of growth and discovery. We wanted to put together something that would be as much a resource for the Gen-Z poet who's finally gathered the courage to invite criticism as it is for the grad student looking to polish their thesis.
That something we set out to create found a name somewhere along the way: CreativeWritingEDU.org.
Creative writing is the beating heart of all forms of written English communication.
When the journey brings a writer to the decision to earn a degree, we're here for that stage too. We give a full range of guidance, including choices for getting a useful creative writing education. This isn't a vague collection of tips and tricks that may or may not work. We sort, assess, and recommend the best and most affordable real-world options for earning a degree in creative writing today.
