Writers Unite: The PVCC Creative Writing Club

Creative Writing Club students and staff advisor at Club Day.

The mission of the PVCC Creative Writing Club is to offer the PVCC community (students, faculty, staff, etc.) an informal, supportive environment for learning about, experiencing, and creating contemporary creative writing-poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. We also strive to promote contemporary creative writing by offering readings by professional, published writers, by publishing the PVCC Literary Magazine, The Fall Line, and by offering opportunities for the PVCC community to write and read creative work.
