Students at Denison enjoy a curriculum in English that balances the need for broad introductory courses with abundant opportunities to focus on special topics. In our small classes, students find varied but uniformly passionate instruction in American, British, and world literature. And for more than 50 years, Denison students have studied the art and craft of creative writing through the Writing Program’s workshops in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction.
