Does anyone know of any LACs with a strong Creative Writing program? I've heard that Wellesley is good but that's about all I know.

In particular, Kenyon rocks... so does Vassar. But really, any of your top LACs are probably going to have great english departments. It sort of comes with the territory. ;D

In addition to those, I remember someone mentioning here that UCI has an amazing creative writing program as well.

Knox College in Illinois has a wonderful creative writing program...and is very generous with merit money and financial aid if that's an issue. Other LAC's with VERY strong creative writing programs besides those already mentioned: Sarah Lawrence (NY), Bard (NY), Beloit (WISC), Eckerd (FL), University of Redlands (CA), Susquehanna (PA), Hollins (VA), Wheaton College (MA), Mt. Holyoke (MA), Trinity College (CT), Smith (MA), Pomona College (CA), Denison U (Ohio), Grinnell (IA), Bennington (VT), Middlebury (VT), Wittenberg (Ohio), HAmilton (NY), Lewis & Clark (Oregon), Washington College (MD). Visit the web sites of each of these schools plus the ones previously mentioned to get a feel for what they are like and what they offer. Good luck!

Of Carolyn's fine list, Middlebury, Kenyon, Vassar, Sarah Lawrence, Bard, Trinity, Pomona and Hamilton are among the strongest, IMHO.

I don't know about Midd. I know someone there who's BF wanted to do creative writing, and switched into poli sci cause the creative writing department was inadequate and small and required too many traditional English classes.

Yes, I have heard mixed things about the Midd creative writing program. I do highly recommend Knox College however - it has a great writing program, a beautiful campus, friendly student body, and is growing in reputation but not quite as selective as Kenyon yet.

One other school to consider for creative writing: Washington College in Maryland, one of the oldest schools in the U.S., has a very fine writing program --- also gives out $60,000 in prizes to creative writing majors.
