York College creative writing courses offer students a chance to develop their writing and creative thinking skills under the direction of an actively publishing faculty, alongside their writing peers, and supported by a host of annual visiting writers and publishers. Each semester, our students choose from a variety of introductory and advanced creative writing courses, such as Fiction Writing or Screenwriting. The college also offers a Creative Writing Minor for those students interested in more actively pursuing their writing careers or goals. Creative writing happens outside the classroom as well, with the student literary and arts magazine, The York Review, the annual Bob Hoffman Writing Contest, and student and professional readings across campus year-round.
