Department of English and Writing

As imaginative and faithful people, we seek stories and images that embody our deepest sense of God’s grace.

Literature and creative writing at Houghton connect you to the great ideas, writers and thinkers of the past and present. Explore the deep questions that matter – identity, relationship, life and death, and God – and give voice to your own reflections and narratives.

Here, education is about collaboration. Hone your skills and help others by working as a consultant in the Writing Center. Collaborate with your professors, invest in your talents and gain new insights as you co-author research publications and present at national conferences.
