An Introduction:

Welcome to The Apprentice Writer, which annually features the best writing and illustrations from nearly 4,000 entries we receive each year from secondary schools throughout the United States.  Every September we send copies printed as a public service by The Daily Item in Sunbury, PA to nearly 3,500 schools.

The Department of English & Creative Writing’s established program in Publishing and Editing gives our creative writing majors an opportunity to showcase what  they have learned by working on one or more of the four magazines the Susquehanna University Writers Institute publishes each year.

Susquehanna’s Creative Writing major now enrolls over 150 undergraduate students who are taught primarily by six widely-published writers.  Our program in Editing and Publishing gives our majors an opportunity to showcase what they have learned by working on one or more of the four magazines the Susquehanna Writers Institute publishes each year.
