I've always wanted to go to a women's college (I'm a feminist, queer, love the history/traditions/community etc.) and Smith is my absolute favorite school, but I'm a writer and concerned about the support for writing at Smith because they don't have a creative writing concentration or minor and the offerings are slim. The English major looks wonderful other than that, though. Writing is definitely my deal and I'd like to go to grad school for it, too, so: any Smith writers out there / anyone know if Smith English professors support writing independent majors, independent studies, etc. or if there is a significant writer's community (literary magazine etc.) at Smith?
