Writing at Georgian Court University

Welcome to the GCU writing community. Whether you are a spoken word artist looking to perform, a fiction writer wanting to workshop, a scholar pursuing a writing coach, a storyteller seeking an audience, or a quiet notebook scribbler ready to write beside friends, you have found our landing page for all things writing at Georgian Court. Writing at GCU has no single department, service, or club attached to it, but rather flexes its transdisciplinary muscle. You will find spaces for your writerly self at English Department sponsored events (Visiting Poet), Creative Writing Club open mics, SMJC library writing retreats and Dose of Poetry experiences, Writing Center appointments & workshops, Fountain Spray launch parties, and Digital Communications production labs. Students, alum, staff, faculty, and community members are invited to browse our offerings, register for events, connect with campus leaders, and offer suggestions. What makes a vibrant writing community for you and how can we cultivate that here at GCU? So, please, start clicking and flipping; find your voice, find your place, find your people – write here, write now!
