Creative Writing Certificate Program Info Sessions

This announcement comes via Susan Miller and Jess Arndt of The Writers House:

There will be two information sessions about the Creative Writing Certificate Program very soon (and a third coming down the pike, time and date TBA.)

Tuesday, Nov. 12 in room 038, from 2:50-4:10 (period 5)
and Monday, Nov. 18 in room 305, from 2:50-4:10.

The Certificate Program is a new program of study available to CW students. It involves a number of course requirements (15 credits total) and a portfolio of completed work from those courses, known as the Independent Project (1 credit.) Students who are already doing a concentration in CW or an Honors Thesis in CW can also do this option; they aren’t mutually exclusive.
