A creative writing program was established during the 2014-2015 academic year, in collaboration with the department of Hebrew literature. Unlike many one-time writing workshops, the program offers a structured, multi-year framework to accompany the writer’s development over a longer period.
The program is open to talented students interested in developing their writing skills in prose or poetry. The fact that the creative writing program is integral to both literary departments makes it especially suitable for writers who are sensible to the need to become closely familiar with literature before writing it.
The aim of the program is to improve and elaborate the students' expressive capacity as well as expanding their knowledge of practical questions involved in writing and publishing literature. The program improves the students' reading, writing, and editing skills and prepares them for dealing with the publishing world.
