Course content

A two-year full-time programme, the first year of the MFA is identical to our existing, world-renowned MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) and offers all the benefits of the workshop-based approach to teaching writing. You will attend weekly workshops supported by individual tutorials and supplementary classes chosen from the full range of MA options in the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing.

Your second year will be structured on the model of the PhD, offering one-to-one supervision of your work-in-progress and culminating in the submission of a full-length work for assessment. In addition you will attend classes in the teaching of Creative Writing and will gain practical classroom experience on our undergraduate programme.

Building on our extensive connections with publishers and agents, you will graduate fully equipped to launch your career as a publishing author while having the training and experience to support your writing career as a teacher of writing.
