Students who wish to strengthen their existing writing skills may be interested in Leeward Community College’s Academic Subject Certificate that has an emphasis on creative writing. This certificate is designed to provide students with an array of writing classes in order to give students a chance to grow as a writer.

Some of the courses students will enroll in are as follows: Composition I and II, Introduction to Creative Writing, Fiction Workshop, and Autobiographical Writing. Students will need to complete a total of 18-19 credits in order to fulfill the requirements for this certificate. On average, students may complete the program in approximately two semesters, depending on a student’s learning plan.

Upon completion of this certificate students should have an encompassing writing skill set to enhance their resumes and potentially obtain jobs as journalists or copywriters. Students can also work independently as authors or novelists. Having developed writing skills may lead to better quality writing both in and out of the work place. Being able to effectively communicate on paper and in other correspondence demonstrates a writing capacity that other individuals may not possess.
