Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing - Poetry (Online)

Prepare for a career in creative writing, publishing, journalism, communications, the law and many other professions, as well as graduate programs (such as the university's low-residency Master of Fine Arts in fiction and nonfiction writing).

Creative writing courses begin during freshman year, unlike many other writing programs. Students can choose between a traditional four-year program, an accelerated three-year plan. Three-year plan graduates who enroll in the Master of Fine Arts program can earn their bachelor's and master' degrees in five years.

Publishing opportunities include the student literary journal, The Manatee; the university's national journal, Amoskeag; high-profile magazines; and literary contests. Students spend classroom and one-on-one time with publishers, agents and editors, and participate in workshops, readings, book-signings and networking events with national bestselling authors and poets.

Our faculty members include critically acclaimed writers who understand the industry, who are joined by nationally renowned visiting writers.

Students join the university's Creative Writing Club and the New Hampshire Writers' Project, the only statewide literary organization for writers of all levels and genres, which is housed on the university's main campus in Manchester.

Four creative writing workshops are at the heart of the program. Students choose three genre workshops and follow them with an advanced creative writing workshop in which they will complete a senior thesis in a genre of their choosing, such as fiction, poetry, nonfiction or scriptwriting.
