Creative Writing Minor

Two Flagler College students work on a project.

Creative Writing Minor

Our creative writers are doers. They're makers. They imagine, create, and publish everything from poetry to flash fiction, short fiction to novels, film to drama.  Creative Writing minors can also work with FLARE, the student-run literary magazine. You'll do everything from read submissions to host the issue launch reading. You can also uncover editing and writing opportunities through internships in the community.

Flagler College is where your creative history begins. 


Program Requirements

You'll take classes in poetry and short fiction, of course, but you'll also have opportunities to study screenwriting, young adult novels, and creative nonfiction. Since good writers are always good readers, you'll also take literature courses to learn from the best of the best. Many Flagler students choose a major in English plus a minor in creative writing.

Every student at Flagler College also gets a broad-based education with Core, our groundbreaking general education program. At Flagler, we're dedicated to educating the whole person. We foster intellectual, social, and personal transformation in our students.

My perspective on my own writing shifted after taking a poetry class at Flagler College, where my professor guided me, and offered insight. I was encouraged to send my poems out to publishers, and after I got my first acceptance, I was hooked!

This program helped develop my writing skills immensely. Some people are born with writing talent, but from what I’ve seen, it’s a talent nurtured by other writers and books.
