Course Summary

Our creative writing courses are taught by world-renowned writers from the Manchester Writing School; one of the most successful of its kind in the UK, with more than 85 graduates and MA students who’ve gone on to become published writers. But skilled writers must also be well-developed readers and this course offers the best of both worlds, allowing you to combine Creative Writing and English as part of a joint degree.While studying and practising creative writing, you’ll take a range of options from the English degree, including American literature, film, television and cultural studies. As you progress, you’ll have the chance to focus on creative writing workshops focusing on two out of three of prose, poetry and script. If you choose the placement route, you will spend Year 3 of your studies on an industry placement. Placement learning is a key element of the course as it allows you to apply university based knowledge, skills and understanding to the real world of work. It also gives you an advantage when you begin looking for your first job upon graduating. And in the final year you’ll be ready to undertake an all-important independent creative project. By the time you leave us, you’ll have an excellent understanding of the critical and cultural contexts in which you’re writing, together with the skills and experience to excel in the creative journey from original idea to finished work.This course has a Foundation Year available.**Features and Benefits**- The English team is friendly, supportive and passionate about the subject, providing a stimulating environment for our students.- You’ll learn from the experience and expertise of a wide range of leading poets, novelists and scriptwriters based at the Manchester Writing School, the largest and one of the most successful of its kind in the UK.- You’ll have access to the many conferences, readings, research programmes, festivals and competitions run by the department.- Engage with the Manchester Children’s Book Festival, a year-long programme of events and activities.- We’ll help you build your own network among our many partners within the creative and culturally rich city of Manchester.- You will have the opportunity to spend your third year on an industry placement.
