About Creative Writing at Malone University:
The Creative Writing Program nurtures and trains literary artists to pursue a writer’s vocation. Through wide reading and studious practice, by trusting our gifts and working together as fellow writers, we explore and test what Keats called “the holiness of the Heart’s affections and the truth of the Imagination.” We cultivate courage and integrity in students whose faithfulness to their calling is evident in the attention and commitment they show their work. We struggle to write better, to be better, in the hope that art can add some measure of beauty and wholeness to the world.
