Creative Writing

The English Department is home to a thriving Creative Writing program. Our faculty have collectively published dozens of books of fiction, poetry, literary nonfiction, and criticism. They have won awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Ingram Merrill Foundation, and the Fulbright Program, as well as University-wide awards for outstanding teaching and mentoring. For undergraduates, we offer a track within the English major, as well as a certificate in Creative Writing. For graduate students, we offer a PhD. Students at all levels focus on either fiction, poetry, or literary nonfiction. We are home to an undergraduate journal, Short Vine, a book publisher, Acre Books, and the nationally prominent literary journal The Cincinnati Review. Our PhD program was ranked eighth in the country by Poets & Writers.
