Creative Writing and Poetics from Naropa University encourages the practice of writing as literary experiment: a radical inquiry into mind and language, and, by extension, into the nature of otherness and interdependence. 


At Creative Writing and Poetics from Naropa University you will develop knowledge and skill in the practice and discipline of writing as a creative art, employ multiple modes of critical inquiry within an expanding awareness of cultural-historical contexts, gain competency in contemplative theory and practice, and actively engage a diversity of personal and cultural values in thinking, experience, and aesthetics.

The Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics' groundbreaking approach to writing and literary studies has launched the careers of writers, teachers, professors, editors, translators, videographers, publishers, artistic rebels, and more.
