MTSU Write

About MTSU Write

MTSU Write is a from-home mentorship program within the English Department.  It is a three-semester program, working with new and experienced writers in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, screenwriting, and playwriting across the nation.


The mission of MTSU Write is to celebrate both the art and craft of creative writing through instruction, mentorship, and outreach.  Our program supports the university’s overall mission to generate, preserve, and disseminate knowledge as well as its vision to be a vibrant hub and engine of cultural development through the following activities:

  • We recruit high quality mentors who possess both literary qualifications and a commitment to teaching and nurturing student writers
  • We provide individualized one-to-one instruction to students that both challenges and encourages them to reach their highest artistic potential
  • We nurture a thriving writing community through a vibrant social media presence and regular community literary events
  • We celebrate the writing life by providing regular opportunities for publishing and live readings for our students, mentors, and alumni

Values and Vision

MTSU Write values the art of creative writing as a crucial form of human expression that elevates both the writer and the audience.  We are committed to sharing the craft of writing through mentorship, and we recognize the necessity of a writing community to support the creation and dissemination of our art.

Our vision is to be a virtual incubator for the development of creative writing without regard for geographical boundaries, a signature program of MTSU, and a hub for the promotion of creative writing throughout the region.
