A minor in writing combines both creative genres (poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction) and professional writing in order to develop well-rounded scholars. Students also read and analyze the work of other writers to understand their thought processes and strategies.
To complement the required coursework, writing minors also travel to hear writers read their work and attend conferences where writers discuss the act of writing. Mount Union students also have the chance to participate in public opportunities to read and receive feedback on their own work.
