Course content

Writing a novel is on most bucket lists, but very few people make their dream a reality. Our fully flexible online MA enables you to develop your novel at your own pace, at times to suit your lifestyle, from anywhere in the world. You’ll be supported throughout by acclaimed novelists, who are experienced creative writing lecturers with valuable industry links.

Our practical and contemporary approach to novel writing ensures you are able to hone your writing skills and develop your book while also identifying gaps in the market and how to approach agents and publishers.

Through our online campus you can access the support of our experts, while interacting with others on the course, at a time to suit you, and you can choose to complete the course in one year (full-time) or over two or three years (part-time) starting in October. From idea generation, to developing character and plot, to pitching your novel to publishers, this MA equips you to master your novel.
