Course content

The MA Prose Fiction at UEA is the oldest and most prestigious Creative Writing programme in the UK. It is uniquely focused on the writing of fiction. We take a rigorous and creative approach to enabling students' ideas, voices, technique and craft. The course can be taken over one year full-time or two years part-time.

Our students’ success is unparalleled - around 38% go on to publish. While at UEA, however, our focus is very much on exploring students’ creative potential in a highly supportive, and well-resourced environment. Recent visiting professors include Margaret Atwood, Ali Smith, Tim Parks, and Ian Rankin.

Aside from the core workshops, students can choose from a wide range of optional modules, either critical or creative critical in focus, and where you can explore specific forms and genres, such as the short story, the writing of crime/thriller fiction, and the dialogue between theory and practice in fiction.
