Note: Page last updated on August 5, 2020. All Creative Writing courses for Autumn 2020 will be taught remotely. Due to the changes in Autumn 2020 canonical hours, courses on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are scheduled for 2 hours, while courses on Tuesday and Thursday are scheduled for 3 hours (in most cases). However, please note that instructors will offer a mix of synchronous and asynchronous teaching such that the total amount of class time per week will be between 2-3 hours.
The course application form for Autumn 2020 is now live. Applications are due September 9, at 5:00pm.
All Arts Core courses and Beginning Workshops are open bid through my.uchicago.edu. If you are unable to secure a spot through bidding, please contact the instructor to be placed on the waitlist. Admission into Advanced Workshops, Technical Seminars and Fundamentals in Creative Writing require instructor consent via our submission form.
All students can take Creative Writing classes, but students who are majoring in Creative Writing, completing a minor in Creative Writing, or completing the Creative Writing Option for MAPH receive priority in consent-based CRWR courses.
