the Creative Writing Program
at Santa Barbara City College
The program is housed in SBCC's Department of English. Courses are taught by members of the English and Journalism Departments.
As a recent article in The Independent highlighted, we encourage both beginning and experienced writers to become part of the program. We offer an experienced faculty, a robust Visiting Writers Series, and--for students enrolled at least half-time at SBCC--the opportunity to compete for the prestigious Emmons Poetry Prize.
Need more convincing? Listen to these SBCC creative writing students.
Whether you're interested in taking a single class, or completing our Creative Writing Certificate, we're happy to have you at SBCC.
If you have questions, please email program director David Starkey.
