Course contentThe MA (Writing) is a one-year (48 weeks), full-time programme intended for committed writers. It is not called an MA in "Creative Writing" because the programme covers forms of writing in addition to fiction and poetry. The MA (Writing) synchronizes with the Department's current postgraduate offerings [MA (Literature and Publishing), MA (Drama and Theatre Studies), etc.], and builds on existing strengths in the diverse arts of writing for page and stage, screen and daily papers.
