UTSC is the only campus at U of T where you can earn a Minor in Creative Writing. Our dedicated faculty are also award-winning writers who take a workshop-based, experiential approach to the study and practice of the literary arts. This means that while you learn how classic and contemporary authors pursue their craft, you also take the exciting first steps towards building your own writing practice.
Whether you love poetry, fiction, memoir, personal essays, literary journalism, screenplays, graphic novels, comics or some wild new combination of genres, the Creative Writing program offers you the freedom to discover your unique literary voice. Beyond the classroom you can attend regular reading events, weekly meetings of C.O.W. (the UTSC creative writing club), enter contests and get published in the UTSC arts journal Scarborough Fair.
There is no better place to immerse yourself in the literary arts than Toronto, the heart of Canada's publishing industry. Join UTSC's growing community of creative writers, and learn how to make your own literary mark on the world.
