About

Oregon State University has a long tradition of excellence in producing and teaching Creative Writing, going all the way back to the 1950s when the future distinguished novelist William Kittredge was a student here, and Bernard Malamud won a National Book Award while teaching in the English Department.

Overview

A low-residency variant of the program is also available on the OSU-Cascades campus in Bend, Oregon.
