At KCAI, creative writing students develop technique in their choice of genre: fiction, poetry, nonfiction, the short story, the prose poem, experimental writing and writing for the screen. Students wishing to major in creative writing have two options for study. They can major in creative writing, which requires a minor in studio art, or pursue a double major in creative writing and a studio discipline.
Each year, two publications are produced through student collaboration and faculty mentorship. Sprung Formal, the creative writing program’s literary magazine, is an award-winning student publication. Compendium is a compilation of writing and images by graduating seniors in art history and creative writing.
