Daniel Gennara, B.F.A. Creative Writing and Screenwriting, 2016

"The Creative Writing program offered me a way of seeing and thinking about writing that went beyond just close reading and analyzing other works. The emphasis on literary writing allowed me to look closely at the things happening around me, to empathize, to make an attempt at relating to people and situations that were completely foreign to me. The in-class critiques were invaluable and every piece of criticism from both professors and peers always helped the writing improve. The small classes offered me a chance to make strong connections with other aspiring writers and it inspired confidence, as I never felt ashamed or nervous about sharing a piece of my writing."

Daniel is now studying a Masters of Fine Arts in Screenwriting at York.
