CA/T Community Classes

The Columbia University School of the Arts Writing Program offers free non-credit writing courses to all current Columbia and Barnard students, staff, affiliates and all School of the Arts alumni.

These courses are taught by current MFA Writing students in the graduate Writing Program, and are aimed at exploring the genres of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry while offering critical feedback on student work.
