The Professional Writing (PW) program at Gaylord College helps students develop the skills needed to succeed in the publishing industry. Those skills, which include the ability to communicate clearly, think logically, manage large-scale projects and craft a compelling narrative, are critical to virtually all careers. PW majors are in the business of writing; learning how to pitch a story, marketing themselves as an author and preparing for careers as freelance authors of books, short stories, magazine articles and screenplays, both fiction and nonfiction, in print and online. Who knows, you could be the next New York Times Best Seller or win an Academy Award for Best Screenplay!
