Course content

A PhD Creative Writing thesis will primarily consist of your own original creative work. The creative element could be a novel, a manuscript of poems, a collection of short stories, a play, or another form of creative output, as required by the project. Alongside this you'll be expected to write a critical analysis of the work, and the context in which it is situated, in order that it can be considered an academic project of PhD standard.
