The Creative Writing Emphasis provides the student with the full range of poetry and fiction courses.
Students interested in literary and artistic creations are encouraged to submit their works to bordertown, the successor to the Winged Lion, an annual creative arts magazine with a student editorial staff. The magazine, published every spring semester, has been the recipient of the Associated Collegiate Press's All-American rating for several years and has also received the ACP's Pacemaker Award. The new bordertown added another honor to this distinguished list, awarded 2nd place in its category in its first year of existence. For further information, contact Dr. Joey Brown.
Students attracted to journalism may write for the College's weekly newspaper, The Chart, also an ACP All-American and Regional Pacemaker award winner. For those interested in feature writing, The Crossroads, the College's magazine, provides this writing outlet.
