Bard College at Simon's Rock: the Early College

Pursue Creative Writing

Creative writing can help students become better readers of their own work, of themselves, and of the world around them. 

The concentration in creative writing offers students the opportunity to explore an array of writing styles and genres.

The faculty in creative writing are published writers and scholars in a range of genres.


Simon’s Rock hosts an annual Poetry and Fiction Reading Series that brings students into contact with some of the most interesting and innovative contemporary writers. In addition, our student-run literary and arts magazine, Glacial Erratic, offers opportunities for student writers and artists to share their work with the campus community.
