Department of Creative Writing
The UNCW Department of Creative Writing unites a community of passionate, dedicated writers who believe that the creation of art is a pursuit valuable to self and culture. Our faculty fosters a rigorous yet supportive environment in which writers can grow as artists and individuals. The department devotes itself to the pursuit of excellence in writing through an informed application of craft. We value versatility, and we encourage writers to explore aesthetics and methods across genre lines.

Please view this short video on the Creative Writing Program at UNCW. We are especially proud of our MFA and BFA programs in Creative Writing, and of our unique, state-of-the-art Publishing Laboratory, where both graduate and undergraduate students learn all aspects of publishing in a hands-on environment that is unique in higher education.
