Well as they said, “Jack of all Trades, master of none”, it is better to find what you work with best rather than play around with all the genres willy nilly, because using the genre you are best with, will allow you to convey what you want to say more easily and your focus will be on being creative rather than actually trying to figure out how to write a short story or a novel, etc. Similar to how an Artist will stick with particular mediums, Watercolour is far different to Oil paints and so the Artist will stay with they are familiar with, the best way to convey what they feel.
You will have access to knowledgeable professors who actively publish fiction, poetry, plays and essays. The creative writing facilities on campus have a dedicated smart classroom, private study and writing lab just for writing students. We also bring in two visiting writers every year to give you the chance to learn from others outside our campus. Our department takes field trips to writing festivals and conferences so you can learn about the latest in creative writing. We encourage you to submit your work and participate in Belhaven's award-winning fine arts journal, the Brogue.
What kind of opportunities will I have in my major that will contribute toward my career?
Despite the large number of academic creative writing programs throughout the world, many people argue that creative writing cannot be taught. Louis Menand explores the issue in an article for the New Yorker in which he quotes Kay Boyle , the director of creative writing program at San Francisco State for sixteen years, who said, “all creative-writing programs ought to be abolished by law.”  Contemporary discussions of creative writing at the university level vary widely; some people value MFA programs and regard them with great respect, whereas many MFA candidates and hopefuls lament their chosen programs' lack of both diversity and genre awareness.
