The Inland Northwest Center for Writers fosters creativity, diversity, and individual style, allowing students to expand their writing, publishing, and teaching talents. Students have opportunities to give public readings in the community. Internships are available with EWU literary journal and with the EWU Press, providing valuable editing and publishing experience. Students also participate in Writers in the Community, by visiting area schools, correctional facilities, shelters, and other community organizations as volunteer creative writing teachers. Graduates pursue careers in writing, editing, publishing, teaching, and other professions where writing and critical thinking abilities are valued. This Creative Writing Program is a 2 year MFA program that provides an intensive, pre-professional course of study with an emphasis on the practice of literature as a fine art.
