Our distinguished school has had over 300 alumni go on to publish books.
At first I dreaded editing - I wanted feedback, sure, but I didn’t want to read other people’s stuff, what if it didn’t interest me and I had to pretend it did?
I learned that there was things I could learn from writing I didn’t like, just as much as there were things I could learn from writing I did like.
The Collaboratory We are proud to say that every Ringling student, regardless of major, is guaranteed the opportunity to gain professional work experience.
Our Collaboratory Commitment pairs teams of Ringling students with local businesses to give students a taste of real-world projects, expectations, and deadlines.All Creative Writing majors at Ringling College have the opportunity to undergo a writing internship during the summer.This internship feeds into the curriculum directly as students will follow it up with a Fall course, INT 301, during which they reflect on their experience for credit.Second, expect a lot of analysis of other’s peoples work.That’s a mixed bag - sometimes you’ll pair up with people who you really like editing their work, and sometimes you’ll pair up with people who you have to force yourself to edit and provide constructive feedback.That’s why we developed our new Creative Writing program—to support, empower, and honor young writers.Becoming a Creative Writing major means joining a group of passionate writers interested in building compelling narratives.With networks around the region and the country, we help you gain exposure to professional best practices and practical application of your technical skills.We are constantly connecting with industry professionals to find new, exciting opportunities to put your skills to work and get a taste of real-world work demands.This is just the mix of feedback that 2014 grad Hannah Brown received from her mentor.I have a Creative Writing degree, and a pretty good collection of classes that gave me a lot of leeway - I did everything from poetry writing to the chapter of a book, a screenplay and a play, and almost always had an enormous amount of discretion in what it was I was writing.
