Get ready to dive into the art and craft of writing fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction—from introductory courses to advanced workshops. In addition to writing, we believe you need to understand the underpinnings of literary traditions to develop as a serious writer, so expect to take literature courses as part of this major.
We fully immerse you not only in how to write but how to present your work. Northland is home to a vibrant community of writers—students, staff, and faculty publish their writing, regularly give public readings, and work with visiting writers who conduct workshops and read at the College. In fact, our region boasts a handful of active, independent bookstores.
