The MA Creative Writing (specialist pathway) provides an intensive opportunity for students to focus on a single writing form: Fiction, Creative Nonfiction, Fiction for Young Readers or Poetry.
The dissertation is substantially longer than on the MA Creative Writing, requiring a greater degree of intensive independent work. At the same time, these degrees offer a significant proportion of structured teaching time and a variety of feedback styles from different tutors/guest lecturers.
