Hello! Welcome to the Creative Writing LibGuide! This resource is designed to provide you with extra reading material, resources, and information about the Creative Writing major.
In ENGL 201, you explore the three major genres: poetry, creative nonfiction and fiction. The way the class is structured, you are required to read extensively in each subject, and then write in one of the genres. But how do you choose between prose and poetry? It helps to identify each genre to understand the expectations of prose and poetry, even though occasionally the genres lapse. Below is an interactive Twine that allows you to explore samples of genre, as well as learning more about them. Check it out!
The resources listed here are not available at Milne, but might be available through IDS (free with your Geneseo account) or at Wadsworth Library.
The websites below are also great tools for writers!
