You’ve Got Our Attention

Share your story with us: We can help you frame the next chapter. Classes are small, about 22 students. Professors are attentive, happy to share their time. And your faculty mentor—a professor formally assigned to you—is an expert guide toward perfecting your craft and making the best steps for college and career.


Internships for All

To land a writing gig, experience is a must—not a plus. That’s why 100% of our students do internships. Access to local and big-city slots (NYC and Philly are a train ride away) embed you in the nation’s biggest media marketplace, launching your first connections—and your first contributions—as a working writer.

Professors Are Pros

Study with faculty mentors who generously share pointers—and personal connections—cultivated in their writing lives. Our professors are industry insiders across magazines, news media, digital media, and corporate communications, with the contacts to bring this-just-in insights—and impressive guest speakers—to their classrooms.
