The Center for Writers
The Center for Writers, functioning under the aegis of the School of Humanities, offers undergraduates the opportunity to concentrate in poetry or fiction within the context of the basic English Bachelor of Arts degree. A cohesive sequence of workshop courses of increasing difficulty encourages student writers to locate and focus their talents and to observe and participate in the process of creative writing. A companion group of theory and literature courses places emphasis on contemporary and current writings, literary theory, and criticism in English and in translation. The Center sponsors two publications: Mississippi Review, a national journal of fiction, poetry and criticism; and Product, a student publication geared to publish and circulate within the university community the very best student writing.
