Creating fine literature is an art form, and the academic pursuit of fine-tuning that art is thriving at the College of Liberal Arts. Creative Writing students at Temple center their studies on the genre they’re most passionate about: fiction, poetry or playwriting. Creative Writing students are storytellers—but what about their own stories? Here, we’ll spin yarns about the students, alumni and faculty whose journeys comprise the greater narrative of Temple’s Creative Writing concentration and MFA. Read their stories below and please contact us if you have a story of your own you think we should tell.
