The creative writing program at UMKC is heavily emphasized on literary works and more academic writing (i.e. short stories and poetry). I wrote commercial fiction novels. Sometimes this created tension in a class because I could only submit partial manuscripts and most critiques I received from other students came with the caveat that "since this is only part of a bigger whole, I can't speak to the whole novel." The department also frowns upon genre fiction.

I have been to multiple schools and this is the best school that I have attended. The general classes were very well balanced and helped me get a deeper understanding of life. The students and faculty of the Physics department are very enthusiastic, helpful and focused.
