Creative Writing in Spanish (Minor)

Department Website

Program Description

The minor in Creative Writing in Spanish encourages young, imaginative writers to discover their strengths and develop skills in creative writing across genres (fiction, poetry, essay) and in a range of other expressive techniques. These skills improve students’ techniques of communication in Spanish, and prepare students to apply this expertise to other professional fields, such as journalism and commercial writing. The program’s faculty includes prominent Latin American, Spanish, and Latinx writers who teach courses in the minor and offer individual guidance to students. The Department of Spanish and Portuguese is an interdisciplinary department focused on the languages, cultural formations, and critical thought emerging from Latin America, the Caribbean, Spain, and the Luso-Afro-Brazilian world.
