Creative Writing



“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

                                                                                                                                                                 - Ralph Waldo Emerson 


Writing is an art, a skill, a joy, an act of hope, a method of communicating ideas, a way of expressing emotion, a means by which we describe existing beauty, and a process through which we can create new beauty. In NESA's Creative Writing program, students are encouraged to find their own voices as well as to achieve mastery of the different existing genres within literature and broadcast mediums. Through the reading of established writers and the close study of their work, students will gain a deeper knowledge of the existing canon. By constantly creating new material, students will be groomed to add to that canon.
