The Creative Writing minor is a 24-hour program of study open to all students regardless of major. Through this minor, students receive guided practice in the writing of poetry, fiction, drama, and non-fiction prose as well as an opportunity to share their work with others, in both workshops and public events. Outlets for student work include Quivira, the state's oldest campus literary magazine, and the Quivira literary club, which sponsors reading, dramatic productions, and other events.
