Drexel University, Certificate Program in Writing and Publishing
Harriet Levin, co-director
Among the courses in literary and professional writing our students take to earn the certificate are the following poetry classes: Creative Writing, Writing Poetry, Poetry Workshop, and Live Poets and Authors. In addition to offering writing classes, the Certificate Program runs a reading series. Recent visiting poets include Carl Phillips, Forrest Gander, Major Jackson, Jane Miller, Sarah Vap, Michael Waters and Gerald Stern. Students also participate in projects in collaboration with One Book One Philadelphia and in social action projects relating to writing such as sponsoring a reading by Haitian poet Beaudelaine Pierre to raise money for earthquake victims in Haiti.
