Months of entry
Imagine writing a full-length novel under the guidance of award-winning crime writers and experienced creative writing tutors. All without relocating or giving up work.
UEA’s part-time, low-residency MA Creative Writing Crime Fiction gives you unique flexibility with a distance-learning course supported by residencies. You’ll take the course via a specially designed, highly inclusive online platform, with three two-day residential periods per year.
Our residencies have involved visits from literary agents and editors as well as professional writers such as Lee Child, Ian Rankin, Arne Dahl, Denise Mina, Mark Billingham and Julia Crouch.
By the end of the course you will have a draft of a full-length work, a stronger self-awareness as a writer and a greatly increased chance of publication.
