Creative Writing (Module)

University of Dundee · School of Humanities

Entry requirements

You should be enrolled for MLitt Study at the University of Dundee, and, in the instance of the number of applications for the module outweighing places available, should submit a piece of creative writing (no more than 1,000 words) to Kirsty Gunn or Jim Stewart no later than mid-July, before the beginning of the new academic year. In general, it is a good idea to contact the course convenors well in advance to discuss the module with them and how it might fit with, and be a development of your other areas of study.
