Are you a writer? A reader? A word nerd?
Do you love to write stories? Have you ever gotten weird looks for choosing to stay in and write instead of going out with friends? Do you wish you could find someone to edit your story and give you genuine feedback beyond, “it’s great”?
Well, you’ve come to the “write” place. This major is a tight-knit group of writers who challenge each other to grow in our writing abilities and techniques. We want to see each other succeed, and we celebrate the victories along the way. We also come alongside each other amidst rejection and discouragement.
Throughout the course of four years, you will be published, refine your writing voice, and explore a variety of genres and writing styles. You’ll explore the various careers you can do in the industry such as agenting, editing, freelancing, and more.
But most importantly, you’ll be surrounded by a supportive group of writers who share your passion. Professional writing is more than a major. It’s a community. A family.
What Makes Us Different?
Taylor University’s Professional Writing major is different from any other college-level writing program in the country. Your professors are published writers themselves and many work in the publishing industry. They show you exactly what you need to know in order to succeed in the real world of publishing. They’ll introduce you to published writers, literary agents, and acquisitions editors who share their specialized knowledge with you.
