Creative Writing Resources

A collection of resources of use to writers.

Browsing

You may want to browse the shelves in Bizzell without a specific author in mind. 

Unlike a bookstore, the library doesn't have broad categories such as Mystery or Science Fiction, but the following guides will help if you just want to come to the third floor and look around. Note that an author's work and literary criticism about an individual author or work are mixed together. So, you will find Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club in the area around PS 3566 .A4554, but you will also find an edition of essays about Palahniuk's work in the same area. 

If you are looking for a specific title or author, use Discover Local, the library's catalog.
