Course content

The MA Biography and Creative Non-Fiction is for anyone seeking to develop their writing in the increasingly diverse and exciting genre of non-fiction.

UEA is the country’s leading university for the teaching of Creative Writing. In 2018/19 the MA Biography and Creative Non-Fiction will be taught by Kathryn Hughes, Ian Thomson and Helen Smith, all of whom have won major literary awards. The course may be taken full time over one year or part time over two, and the seminars are timetabled to be convenient to those who wish to travel from London.

During the year you will meet agents and publishers, hear talks by distinguished non-fiction writers and write a piece to be published in the annual student anthology.
