The undergraduate Creative Writing Program at Emory celebrates its 29th birthday this year. In this program, students can approach the study of literature in a creative way - through their own writing - as well as by the more traditional method of critical analysis and reading. Students may also pursue their personal interests and investigate specific genres, including poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, playwriting and screenwriting.

It is the writer's privilege to help man endure by lifting his heart, by reminding him of the courage and honor and hope and pride and compassion and pity and sacrifice which have been the glory of his past. The [writer's] voice need not merely be the record of man, it can be one of the props, the pillars to help him endure and prevail.
