During this trying time, UC San Diego Extension remains committed to helping you achieve your goals. In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have transitioned all of our spring and summer courses to an online or hybrid format. Hybrid classes are fully online with live virtual class meetings each week using our Zoom conferencing system. Online classes will have pre-recorded lectures each week and guided assignments from the instructor.
The Professional Certificate in Creative Writing is designed to provide you with the skills necessary to write in a variety of creative writing genres. You will learn core creative writing skills and choose from a selection of electives in the areas of Fiction, Creative Non-Fiction, Stage & Screenwriting, Children’s Writing, Poetry, and/or The Business of Writing in order to develop more specific skills. You’ll also benefit from a structured course of study and have the opportunity to earn a certificate whether you rely on these courses as a means to explore personal interests, pursue professional growth, or career goals.
