As the great writer and New Yorker James Baldwin once said, “You write in order to change the world.” As a Creative Writing major, you’ll hone your narrative and lyric styles, take artistic risks, and push past the limits of your imagination to build other realities, both on the page and in your community.
Why Study Creative Writing at MMC?
Join one of the few creative writing undergrad programs in the publishing capital of the United States. By being in New York City, you will engage with the city’s literary institutions and events. Readings, launches, book festivals, publishing networking opportunities, and a diverse writing community await.
Our workshop-based curriculum will sharpen your narrative skills in a supportive environment. Dedicated faculty and passionate fellow students will bring new perspectives to your work, offer individualized attention, and provide insightful feedback to make your writing even stronger.
You’ll also learn what it takes to get a piece from submission to publication through your work on our literary magazine. Students select, edit, lay out, and distribute the issue for a true hands-on experience in the world of publishing.
