The Creative Writing Society

Oregon State University’s Creative Writing Society is an organization created by writers, for writers. Our goal is to create a community of writers from all backgrounds, genres, and majors. Members are connected with resources and information about literary competitions, such as NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and publishing opportunities both inside and outside OSU. We meet once during the week to read and discuss each other's work in a workshop setting. On the weekend, we meet to hold writing sessions and participate in activities such as exquisite corpse to generate inspiration.
