Professional Creative Nonfiction Writing
Ready to spark interest and inspire action with your writing? Designed for aspiring professional writers, the professional creative nonfiction writing program prepares you to master the fundamentals of narrative nonfiction and find your unique creative voice. You'll assess writing from the nonfiction genre, from personal essays and travel writing to memoir and literary journalism, and use the fundamentals of each of those forms to develop your skills. In addition, we'll help you discover ways to connect with your audience and make a name for yourself in the market.
In addition to providing a foundation in nonfiction writing, the program will help you develop the routines and habits essential to being a consistently productive writer. You also will develop the editing skills that will allow you to assess and improve your writing and that of others. You can earn your MA in professional creative writing with a concentration in professional creative nonfiction writing entirely online or evenings on campus through the University of Denver's University College. Beyond the coursework dedicated to nonfiction, you can choose electives from other creative writing areas, including poetry, and dramatic and fiction writing.
