Creative Writing Program

A public reading presented by creative writing students

The Creative Writing Program at BU offers small class sizes, ideal for workshopping your original short stories, poetry, plays, song lyrics, and literary essays. If you love reading, but you also desire to write your own works for pleasure and/or profit, Creative Writing at BU is for you!

The program’s coordinator, Professor Dale Lakevold, is an active and prolific playwright. View his profile here.

Many creative writing students partake in a valuable and rigorous thesis-writing course, and we congratulate all students on the works they have created!
