Creative Writing involves the study and production of literary and non-literary texts through focused experimentation with languages. Creative Writing courses at Capilano University give students the opportunity to develop their own fiction or poetry in a workshop led by an instructor who is also a practicing writer.
First-year courses include English 190 (Creative Writing I) and English 191 (Creative Writing II). We offer a variety of second-year Creative Writing courses. To enroll in second-year courses, students need credit for English 190 and 191 or the instructor's permission.
Students who want to explore Creative Writing further may consider pursuing the Associate of Arts - Creative Writing
