Creative Writing

Creative writing degree programs at the University of Windsor are among the oldest and most innovative in Canada. What makes our creative writing degree programs unique is how the degree combines literature and language coursework with creative writing workshops.

Students graduating BA Honours or BA Combined Honours will have acquired, as part of their creative writing degree and at second, third, and fourth-year levels, intensive creative writing workshop experience gelling around sustained attention to their writing. Students will have been introduced to a range of writing styles and techniques, as well as a range of published authors, international to local.

Creative writing students may graduate by way of a BA Honours or BA Combined Honours in English and Creative Writing. In order to complete the degree, students must reapply each year and be accepted into each of the Creative Writing workshops offered.
