Course info

Summary

Study literature, literary criticism, and key aspects of the writing process – from crafting a scene, to pacing a story, working with imagery, and hooking a reader’s interest. The Creative Writing program will familiarize you with the practical aspects of writing, and include courses in poetry, short fiction, editing and publishing, and more.

The Creative Writing program on UBC’s Okanagan campus provides you with an opportunity to study literature and literary criticism, and to bring what you learn from these studies into your own work. Course options include poetry, creative non-fiction, short fiction, novels, playwriting, screenplay, writing with media, editing and publishing, and community learning. The program fosters a supportive community of faculty and peers in which you’ll find encouragement to explore new genres and writing forms.

You’ll be actively involved in writing projects, chapbook production, magazine editing, new media work, student anthology production, and community learning projects. You’ll also have the chance to build a varied body of work for your own portfolio – all while studying under a faculty of award-winning writers dedicated to helping you experiment and grow as a writer.

Experiential learning and research

As part of your coursework, you’ll have the opportunity to complete extensive manuscript production. You’ll also have the option of taking a directed studies course, where you can investigate a creative writing practice and complete a significant writing project. The Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies offers $2,500 undergraduate research awards to support student research and creative activities over the summer months.

The Creative Writing program on UBC’s Okanagan campus organizes author readings throughout the academic year and runs an annual short story contest. A visiting writers series and Writer-in-Residence program provide additional opportunities to meet and learn from accomplished writers. You can also join the Creative Writing Course Union to connect with peers and share your work.
