Creative writing courses are open by application to Harvard College undergraduates, graduate students, staff, and students from other institutions eligible for cross registration. Priority is given to Harvard undergraduates. Writing workshops are offered each term in fiction, poetry, nonfiction, screenwriting, and playwriting. Workshops are small, usually no more than twelve students, and concentrate on one genre.
Without approval of the department, no student may take more than two Creative Writing courses in any one year. A course may be repeated for credit provided the student has the permission of the instructor and the Director of Undergraduate Studies of the Department.
All applications are due on the first day of classes each term in the English Department office.
Fall term 2012 - Tuesday, September 4 at 4 p.m.
Spring term 2013 - Monday, January 28 at 4 p.m.
NO EXCEPTIONS. The Department cannot accept applications by e-mail. Hard copies must be delivered. Creative writing classes will not meet during the first week.
