Online writing courses, writing retreats, and more
The Center for Creative Writing offers year-round online writing courses in six-week sessions designed to help you get to the page and thrive there. We believe writing is for anyone, and that teaching "how to write" is as much about craft and content as it is about getting to know your unique creative process so you can create a fruitful and sustainable practice.
Many of our students have only just named themselves writers. Some are returning to creative impulses after long careers in other fields, and many more at all stages of life are awakening to a call to connect, to tell their stories and record their truths, whether for themselves or for an audience, in their own way. No matter your level of experience, we have a course that will help you write more and better, and a community to inspire and support you on your writing journey.
The time is now. Come write with us.
*Because Black lives matter, we will be donating 5% of the registration proceeds for the Sept. 8 session to The Loveland Foundation, which provides fellowships, residency programs, listening tours, and more to bring opportunity and healing to communities of color. Rachel Cargle founded Loveland after her 2018 social media campaign raised over $250,000 to provide therapy support for Black women and girls across the nation.
For the July 21 session, we donated 5% of registration proceeds to Boston University's Center for Antiracist Research, directed by Ibram X. Kendi. Kendi is the author of How to Be an Antiracist and Stamped from the Beginning: A Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America, which we strongly recommend.*
