Creative Writing Track
The Department of English is pleased to offer a selective-admission Undergraduate Creative Writing Track. The Creative Writing Track provides students with the opportunity to work intensively in their chosen genre while they participate in a multi-genre community experience that draws on the richness of the creative writing tradition at The University of Iowa, and in Iowa City at large.
The Writing Track is a multiple-genre experience that includes Fiction, Poetry, Nonfiction, Playwriting, and Translation. The hub of the Writing Track is a cluster of intimate Writers’ Seminars that will give students the opportunity to creatively engage the relationship between reading and writing and to explore questions of craft, literary traditions, and aesthetics in a manner that is both inspiring and rigorous.
All students who will have junior or senior standing (at least 60 semester hours) and will have successfully completed the prerequisites by the end of the current term are invited to apply. The applicaton deadline for Spring 2014 admission to the Creative Writing Track is noon on Friday, November 1st; see the Admissions page for details. Creative Writing Track will be indicated on the transcripts of those students who successfully complete the requirements.
