Course content

Our MA in Creative Writing provides you with the opportunity to work closely with practising creative writers at the University and several other writers from outside the University. You can also hear from professionals from other areas of the publishing industry who will visit to give talks and answer questions. You also have the opportunity to work in all literary genres of writing and have the chance to publish your work.

This programme allows you the opportunity to balance creative practice with critical analysis, reflection on production processes and a honing of skills. There is also a strong emphasis on the productive writer as a productive reader who is familiar with the literature being produced around them.

There is the opportunity to develop a portfolio of creative work and build a network of contacts in preparation for a career in the creative industries.
