Course content

The new MLitt in Creative Writing course is for writers who wish to draw on the benefits of workshops with peers and tutors while developing their ideas. It combines the features of both a research-based and taught masters course.

Throughout the course, creative industry experts lead core creative writing classes and skills-focused projects and workshops. Specialist related modules are available and the course comes to an end with a dissertation. This gives students the opportunity to work on an extended creative project which you will develop on a one-to-one basis with your tutor.

Staff at the University of Strathclyde can offer specialist tuition in a wide range of genres including:

  • poetry
  • historical fiction and fiction for young adults
  • radio drama
  • screenwriting
