English Department

The English department strives to give students opportunities for real-world experience. Not only does the college offer an Associate of Science transfer degree in English, but they have the chance to work as peer mentors in the writing center, promote the program, edit and produce The Clackamas Literary Review and help plan CCC's annual creative writing conference, Compose.

Additional academic resources include the Testing Center and Placement Advising for Student Success (PASS).

Compose Writing Workshop

Compose is an annual workshop open to budding writers, lovers of literature and anyone interested in telling a story. Held in the spring at our Oregon City campus, this low-cost workshop teaches attendees how to tell stories in meaningful ways, giving them the opportunity to network, share ideas and learn from special guest speakers including television writers and authors.

Compose is held each year on the third Saturday in May. Watch this space for registration information!
