For over fifty years undergraduate student writers have been receiving degrees in creative writing from SUNY Oswego. The poet Lewis Turco established creative writing at Oswego in 1963 and since then the program has grown to encompass more than 220 majors and minors, six full-time faculty writers, and a host of visiting and adjunct writers.
Students in the program may concentrate in poetry, fiction, playwriting, screenwriting, and creative nonfiction. We now have one of the premiere degree-granting undergraduate creative writing programs in the country.
Writing is a solitary activity, an act of communication that can feel like an act of separation. Our students know the tremendous luxury of having access to a community of artists.
In the Creative Writing Program students participate in small workshops, one-on-one tutorials and, in The Living Writers series, talks by faculty and visiting writers specifically designed for students studying in different genres.
We value community here, the shared practices as writers that we've built up over the years - students and faculty working together in service of our writing, writers of all levels working together in a supportive environment. There are student and faculty readings, panels, projects, social get-togethers, and at the end of the year, a program picnic.
Students Comments on the Program
"This opportunity re-energized my commitment to writing. It was a wonderful experience."
"At every workshop I learned something that helped my writing now and will help me avoid some mistakes in the future."
"Individual attention from the staff and their willingness to invest extra time in the students is really extraordinary."
"The instructors did a tremendous job of creating an environment where we felt safe and confortable sharing our work."
"The small groups were very effective in showing the subtle (and not so subtle) differences in genres and how to explore each one."
