Beyond the Classroom

Mills offers a close-knit community of scholars and artists who come together on a regular basis for literary events, creative projects, and opportunities to use literature as a force for social change.

  • 580 Split, an annual journal of arts and literature published by graduate students, features innovative and risk-taking fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and art.
  • Project Verb trains students in designing and leading writing workshops to share the transformative power of words with people in nearby communities. Students conduct these workshops in after-school programs, halfway houses, and community-based organizations.
