Course content

Creative Writing modules are taught by practicing writers, and focus on your own creative writing while engaging in close study of contemporary work. Faculty and fellow students at Southampton come from all over the world – including India, Columbia, Pakistan, Iceland, the USA, Nigeria, and of course the UK – bringing a wide range of experiences and writing traditions, and giving our programmes an international focus. Students take part in a lively programme of literary events, including our own “Writers in Conversation” held at Nuffield Theatre, on a campus that includes a professional art gallery, a concert hall, and a world-renowned theatre. Our programme offers to opportunity to specialise in a particular area, and to work in a friendly academic environment.

All MA Creative Writing students attend the Creative Skills workshop, a weekly forum focused solely on your own writing. You will then also choose from five specialist fields of creative writing, as well as having the option of taking a module from other Humanities courses including MA English and MA Film.
