Emory has the write stuff

According to recent headlines, Emory has the write stuff.

An article yesterday, “Emory Students Get Book Published,” touted a group of 19 Emory students who recently wrote an anthology of short stories. The collection, The Emory Pulse: Your Creative Writing Lifeline, is available for purchase on Amazon, and is hopefully the first edition of many. The inaugural book is fictional and is divided into two sections – “On the Fantastic” and “On the Realistic.” The icing on the cake, though, is that profits from The Emory Pulse will be donated to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

With that in mind, it only makes sense that USA Today ranked Emory as no. 1 on its list of “The 10 best American colleges for writers.” The article boasted Emory as offering “extraordinary flexibility to its students.” Emory’s English classes have a maximum of 15 students each, allowing for more personal relationships between professors and students.

And, while I'm shamelessly bragging, the May 2011 edition of EmoryWire featured yet another Emory alumnus who won the Pulitzer Prize.

Write on!
