The Creative Writing major at Loras College offers introductory and advanced coursework in fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction, in addition to specialized courses in Screenwriting, Nature Writing, Fantastic Fiction and Revision, Editing & Publishing. Seniors write a creative thesis mentored by a Writing faculty member, and all courses are taught as workshops with no more than 15 students in attendance.
Creative Writing majors are actively engaged on campus and beyond. A student editorial board edits and publishes Catfish Creek: A National Undergraduate Literary Magazine
. Our students present their scholarship and creative writing along with that of peers from other institutions at the annual Streamlines Undergraduate Language & Literature Conference. And many of our students publish their works in The Limestone Review
, the College’s annual journal of creative writing and scholarship.
