The Creative Writing programme exposes undergraduates at Ashoka University to the practice of writing poetry, fiction, nonfiction and translation. Students also have the opportunity to explore their interests in other emerging genres depending on available faculty expertise in them. The Creative Writing department at Ashoka includes writers, translators, poets, and people who’ve worked in the field of publishing. We offer courses in fiction, poetry, translation, and more. Our classes provide students with an opportunity to sharpen their interest in different forms of writing. Courses offered by the department assist the interpretation of literature from the point of view of a practitioner. The department offers a minor and a concentration.
Creative Writing also collaborates with the Department of English to offer the Interdisciplinary B.A. in English and Creative Writing. Please refer to the English Department website for further details.
