Creative Writing

The untold story.

You have a passion for writing. Whether you want to write novels, short stories, poetry, plays or creative nonfiction, the Creative Writing Signature Experience at Peddie will help you develop that passion. Inspired by extraordinary electives, visiting writers, trips on the Culture Bus and dedicated faculty advisors, you'll broaden your academic studies with original, independent creative writing.

Meet visiting authors and participate in workshops. Enroll in summer programs to enrich your studies. Take leadership roles in Creative Writing Club and in the publication of the Amphion, Peddie’s art and literary magazine. Submit your work for publication, both in the Amphion and in off-campus contests and publications. Share your work with peers at coffeehouses and other readings. Your final Capstone Project will leave you with a strong portfolio of written work.
