The Writer's Path at SMU

the writer's path in fall

Creative Writing


Fall Registration Open!

 Join us for a free Information Session August 14, Dallas Hall 152 from 7-8 p.m.

It's been a yearning since you opened your first book. It's been a longing since you picked up your first pencil. It's been a burning since The Idea first entered your mind.

You want to write. We teach you how.

Join us at The Writer's Path at SMU. We're a home for adults who are following the desire and fulfilling the dream of writing a book. Fiction or non-fiction, short story or personal essay, we are the place to learn craft, find allies and embrace the practice of writing.

We have classes that lead from your first idea through the many levels of doing the work. Completion is only one arrival, for there are revisions, polishing, rewriting and polishing again -- all skills we teach and tools we share. Whether you want to write a memoir for just your family, a best seller for the world, or anything in between, come to us to learn how.
