“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.” – Albert Einstein
By using language to build new landscapes and characters, to evoke images and tell stories, students who study Creative Writing at MU expand the realm of what is possible. Your support can do the same for our students.
Beyond the classroom, interacting with some of the most celebrated writers of our era teaches student writers how near and reachable literary greatness can be. Through the MU Visiting Writers Series, we have welcomed such literary luminaries as Colson Whitehead, Karen Russell, Natasha Tretheway, Lorrie Moore, Terrance Hayes, Claudia Rankine, and Roxane Gay. Your generosity means we can continue to inspire and challenge our students daily to imagine worlds of their own, because we believe imagination stimulates progress. Please donate to give students the resources to explore, evolve, imagine.
