Welcome to the Creative Writing Program at Stanford University!
Our program is home to nearly 1,200 undergraduate students taking creative writing classes, most of whom go on to pursue the minor. Each year, we also support 20 Stegner Fellows as they practice and perfect their poetry and prose over the course of a 2-year fellowship.
To help shepherd these writers along, we turn to our esteemed faculty and lecturers. They are invaluable to the program, with their collective wisdom, worldly experience, and literary expertise. The annual authors-in-residence--the Mohr Visiting Poet and the Stein Visiting Writer--share in this space, offering creative flair and unique perspectives.
All the while, the administrative team is hard at work, creating an environment where a writer's success is celebrated and the evolution of their craft is encouraged.
