Community Creative Writing Resources

Chicago and the surrounding Chicagoland area offer many writing groups, writing seminars, and writing workshops for those interested in creative writing. DePaul University offers a Masters of Arts in Writing and Publishing, but there are also several programs outside the DePaul Community to help enhance your creative writing skills. Students could use these non-DePaul resources as part of developing an Independent Learning Project on creative writing.
