"Crossing Genres: Highlights from Denison's Creative Writing Program"
~ Dr. Margot Singer & the Creative Writing Department

"For more than 50 years, Denison students have studied the art and craft of creative writing through the Writing Program's workshops in poetry, fiction and nonfiction. Students may chose to major in English with an emphasis in creative writing, undertaking a program that culminates in a year-long senior writing project. Recent projects have included novels, books of poems or plays, memoirs, and works of creative nonfiction.". Additional details about session coming in September.

"How parents can support the career development of their children as well as other Denison students"
~ Doug Price '83/P'12, Senior Manager at Capital Advisors Ltd
One of the most valuable things parents can do to help a student with career planning is listen: be open to ideas, try to help your student find information, and be nonjudgemental. Take a step back into the classroom and listen to Denison parent and alumnus, Doug Price, as he shares his perspective on the parent's role in the career development process at Denison.
