FSU Creative Writing



In 2006, The Atlantic Monthly ranked the top ten MFA programs and the top five PhD programs in the country. Only one program made both of those lists: Florida State University. The Creative Writing Program is now affiliated with FSU's top-ranked schools of Film and Theatre. Our faculty includes winners of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, as well as professors who are not only dedicated to the craft of writing but who are also widely known as teachers of the craft. We also happen to be located in the heart of Tallahassee: a capital city with Southern charm, where the roads are lined with live oaks and the world's best oysters are shucked fresh from the Gulf.

FSU Creative Writing Presents

With Robert Pinsky and Erin Belieu
The Favorite Poem Project
Thursday, March 24, 2016, 7:00 p.m.
Alumni Center Grand Ballroom
1030 W Tennessee Street

The Favorite Poem Project is dedicated to celebrating, documenting and encouraging poetry's role in Americans' lives. Robert Pinsky, the 39th Poet Laureate of the United States, founded the Favorite Poem Project shortly after the Library of Congress appointed him to the post in 1997. This unique voice for poetry in America will be bringing a multimedia poetry performance to FSU, which features readings by members of the Tallahassee artistic community, project founder Robert Pinsky, FSU's own Erin Belieu, as well as video from the archives of the Favorite Poem Project. This event is free and open to the public. Please join us for an evening of poetry that should not be missed.
