Creative Writing Opportunities for Undergraduates

The Creative Writing Program at Notre Dame connects students to the energy and diversity of contemporary writing. Our distinguished faculty helps students to find their voices and to connect their own writing to larger issues in contemporary writing, including writing and social concerns, digital media and technology, global writing and translation, minority and immigrant literatures, and literary publications and careers. 

In addition to courses, our program offers a lively series of literary readings and events from visiting writers at every stage of their careers, from debut novelists to US Poet Laureates.

Our courses are open to students in any major. Browse through our current course offerings here.
