The Levinthal Tutorial is a program where students are paired with Stegner Fellows to work one-on-one, generating and revising work in fiction, nonfiction, or poetry. Levinthal students engage in weekly meetings with Stegners, participate in cohort-wide programming, and pursue their writing projects with mentorship and community.
An Independent Study (English 198) gives undergraduate students the opportunity to work one-on-one with Creative Writing lecturers or English faculty members (professors) to engage in a co-designed curriculum. Students can discuss readings, generate work, and revise drafts with mentorship and guidance from their instructors.
To begin pursuing an Independent Study, complete the Interest Form.
The Creative Writing Undergraduate Prizes are open to all Stanford undergraduates. Judged by a panel appointed by the program, these prizers honor creative works of high literary merit--poetry, fiction, and nonfiction alike.
Prize winners are invited to participate in the annual Undergraduate Prize Reading, where the winners share their polished work with our community.
