A hands-on, customizable learning environment
The creative writing program emphasizes the workshop model, providing greater opportunity for applied learning. The curriculum is centered primarily around creative nonfiction writing, providing students with flexibility in their future career choices. And, to ensure flexibility, students can learn how to effectively write about specific subject matter through the “Writing About…” workshop series, giving them an opportunity to tailor the curriculum to their interests and future goals.
- Hiram is one of the few schools in Ohio to offer a creative writing major that is independent from the English major.
- Select students can gain work/teaching experience while earning class credit and a paycheck by working as writing assistants at the Writing Center.
- Hiram’s “Screenwriting” class is unique to the program as it is typically only offered as part of a filmmaking program at most schools.
