Great reading inspires great writing

Stephen King said it best: “If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.” 

The minor in literature was created to complement SFA’s Bachelor of Fine Arts in creative writing. This 21-credit minor is mandatory for all Bachelor of Fine Arts students as a way to ensure that you continue to read widely even as you develop and hone your own writing abilities. You’ll take deep dives into classic and contemporary literature from all over the world, gaining a greater appreciation and understanding of the writer’s craft along the way.
