Creative Writing Signature Experience
As part of the larger Signature Experience at Peddie, the English department encourages selected students to develop their passions for creative writing (including poetry, fiction, playwriting, or creative nonfiction) through a sequence of elective classes and extracurricular activities culminating in a public performance or exhibition in the senior year. Inspired by field trips to readings, theaters, and literary festivals, as well as by visiting professionals, these young writers will broaden their academic studies at Peddie with original, independent work in creative writing.
Interested students who qualify for the Creative Writing Signature Experience will meet with Mr. Hedges at the end of the sophomore year to discuss their progress, coursework, and goals and to formally request admission to the Signature program. Demonstrated achievement and self-motivation are also pre-requisites for admission. There is no additional cost for participation in the Creative Writing Signature Experience.
