The Creative Writing major at Loras College offers introductory and advanced coursework in Fiction, Poetry, and Creative Nonfiction, along with specialized courses in Screenwriting; Nature Writing; Fantastic Fiction; Writing for Social Media; Writing for Social Action; Professional Writing (including technical and grant writing); and Revision, Editing & Publishing. Seniors write a creative thesis mentored by a Creative Writing faculty member. All Creative Writing courses are taught as workshops with no more than 15 students.
 
Creative Writing majors are actively engaged on campus and beyond. A student editorial board edits and publishes Catfish Creek: A National Undergraduate Literary Journal. Our students present their scholarly and creative writing on campus at the college's annual Legacy Symposium, and, along with students from other colleges, at the annual Streamlines Undergraduate Language & Literature Conference. Many of our students also publish their writing in The Limestone Review, the college’s annual journal of scholarship and creative writing.
