Course content

UEA’s part-time, low-residency MA Creative Writing Crime Fiction provides you with the opportunity to write a full-length novel under the guidance of award-winning crime writers and experienced creative writing tutors. It offers unique flexibility, involving distance learning supported by residencies, meaning you don’t have to relocate or give up work to study with us.

The course is delivered via a specially designed, highly inclusive online platform, and three short residential periods per year. These incorporate a mix of creative and critical workshops and seminars, and a masterclass from a leading crime writer. Professional writers involved in the residencies have included Lee Child, Ian Rankin, Melanie McGrath, Denise Mina, Mark Billingham and Julia Crouch. Visits from literary agents and editors also take place during the May residential period.
