Creative Writing Program

Love to write your own poetry, fiction, or nonfiction (or all of the above)? Give your imagination free rein in Suffolk's creative writing program.

As an English major, you can pursue the creative writing concentration. You can minor in creative writing if you're not an English major.

Suffolk University creative writing students enjoy a series of workshops, many run by notable visiting scholars. Suffolk also has a dedicated Poetry Center within our Mildred F. Sawyer Library. The center is one of Boston’s creative hubs, home to our own poetry collection as well as the site of seminars, workshops, and readings of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction available to our students and the larger community.

Internship opportunities are also available through the English Department. You can learn more on our Internships/Careers page.
