Creative Writing Program

The Creative Writing Program at UGA directs and supports the emergence of the artistic voice in print by offering a Ph.D. in English with a creative dissertation.

The program teaches undergraduate and graduate creative writing and literature classes and hosts a visiting writers series that offers all students exposure to the Athens’s artistic community with frequent events, such as poetry readings, as well as workshops built around helping students with their own creative ventures.
