Creative Writing & Literature

The Creative Writing and Literature Program at New Mexico School for the Arts provides New Mexico students extensive training and practice in writing, editing, and critical reading under the guidance of master teachers and professionals. In addition to developing writing skills, students will engage in reading a wide selection of literature including poetry, short fiction, novels, and nonfiction, responding to the work through writing, projects, and Socratic seminars.

NMSA also offers a minor in Creative Writing for students in one of the other arts majors: theatre, dance, visual arts, or music. Classes are offered as electives during the academic portion of the day, and may be offered by NMSA or as a dual-credit class with the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) or other participating college. Students must take a minimum of three elective classes in three different creative writing genres by their senior year to be eligible to enroll in the year-long senior writing workshop, where they are guided in creating a culminating independent creative writing project. The project can be integrated into the senior’s project in his or her major with approval by the department chair in the major.
