As a student at WP, I’ve been given so many opportunities to succeed. Smaller class sizes allow me to get one-on-one feedback from professors, and the skills I’ve built in class helped me to write and publish two books. I’m currently working on two large creative projects under my professors’ guidance that are really helping me to grow as a writer and build my professional portfolio.
