Creative Writing

Welcome to the Harrison Creative Writing Department!

The goal of the creative writing department at Harrison School for the Arts is to prepare students who are capable, clear communicators, inspired thinkers, and discerning consumers and producers of the written word. The practice, revision, and exposure to new voices provided by the department forms a solid foundation for students wishing to pursue the literary arts in college and beyond. In addition, the editorial techniques imparted to students help ensure that they are coherent, proficient writers for both academic and workplace settings.
