The fact that UNC-Greensboro and N.C. State University in Raleigh offer graduate writing programs has challenged Carolina to concentrate on excellence for undergraduates. There are over 250 creative writing programs in the United States, mostly for students at the masters' level, but very few offer as much breadth, variety, and professionalism at the college level as UNC-Chapel Hill has for decades.
This site, adapted almost word for word from a departmentally-produced booklet, Creative Writing at Carolina, provides basic information about the program -- its history, faculty, alumni, curriculum, and extracurriculars. For further details, please contact the director of Creative Writing, whose address can be found at the end.
