New creative writing club creates community
Choose from two majors: Creative Writing & Literary Studies. Create everything from poetry to podcasts by working together in a lively and supportive community.
A degree in Creative Writing or Literary Studies at Beloit will prepare you for all kinds of directions after graduation. Learn to think critically and creatively, communicate effectively, and collaborate productively, and you will always be better for it in your chosen path.
We offer an innovative, flexible and integrated curriculum that combines literary study and creative writing with strong ties to our media studies and journalism programs. You can take English courses in topics like Victorian Garbage, Graphic Novel and Comics, Medieval Love, Horror in Film and Fiction, Video Essay, and Music Journalism.
When you study Creative Writing and Literary Studies at Beloit, something is always happening. Creative writing contests. Visiting writers. Student readings. Zine-making workshops. Literary balls in your favorite character costume. Going to a national conference to represent the Beloit Fiction Journal, which you helped edit.
Hands-on campus opportunities like editing the student newspaper and putting together a museum exhibit will help you prepare for you. So do experiences like an internship at a national newspaper like USA Today or a literary press like Milkweed Press. Then comes the Fulbright in Korea, the MFA in Iowa, or even making The New York Times bestseller list with your fantasy book series.
These are our stories. Come to Beloit and start a new one all your own.
