The Creative Writing Department at Austin Community College (ACC) helps students of all backgrounds and ages discover the power and enjoyment of writing creatively. Our beginning courses introduce writers to the knowledge and literary tools needed for writing poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, plays, and screenplays. Advanced courses help students explore a subject area in greater depth within a seminar/workshop setting. Our faculty consist of practicing writers with advanced degrees and/or first-hand experience and publications in the subjects they teach. ACC offers an Associate of Arts Degree in Creative Writing in both face-to-face and online formats, giving students on opportunity to produce professional-level projects and also to transfer their skills to four-year universities.
