Award-Winning Film Company, SenArt Films, Offers Wilkes Creative Writing Students Unique Experience
“Having worked with Wilkes for several years now, I’ve been impressed with the creative writing program, and we’re excited to give qualified students the chance to get actively, creatively involved with our ongoing film projects. It’s hard work, but for students with the right attitude, we offer the opportunity to experience what the film business is all about,” said SenArt’s founder Robert May.
The Graduate Creative Writing Program offers master of arts and master of fine arts degrees with tracks in fiction, poetry, screenwriting, playwriting and creative non-fiction. Both are low-residency programs requiring participants to attend two eight-day residencies annually on the University campus in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., with other coursework completed online.
