Poets, novelists, screenwriters, playwrights, graphic novelists, magazine writers: they entertain, inform and inspire.
For more than 10 years, UBC's Creative Writing program has been educating writers through distance education in a program which complements our long-standing on-campus MFA program.
As a fine arts program rather than an English program, students focus on the practice of writing rather than the study of literature.
Students may work on a part-time basis, taking up to five years to complete the degree.
