The minor in Creative Writing offers students the opportunity to hone their creative writing skills. The Creative Writing minor requires 18 hours, including CRW 100 and one 300-level literature course (ENG). The remaining four courses will consist of Creative Writing (CRW) courses offered by the English department or cross-listed with the English department; at least two of these must be at the 300 level. 300-level courses may be repeated one time for credit in the minor. Students may receive credit in the minor for ENG 386 at the discretion of the minor adviser. No more than one course (three hours) taken elsewhere may be counted toward the 18 hours of Creative Writing courses required for the minor. This limitation applies to courses taught in approved non-Wake Forest programs, not to courses in programs offered or sponsored by Wake Forest.

English majors may earn a Creative Writing minor by taking 15 hours of Creative Writing courses (at least two at the 300 level) exclusive of courses used to complete their major.
