This course combines creative writing with critical writing. You'll develop your creative writing in the context of advancing your critical skills and knowledge of English Studies. You'll also engage with a wide variety of literary genres as both a critical reader and a creative practitioner, with expert guidance from published creative writers and academic researchers.

This Masters degree enables you to reflect critically on and develop creative writing in the context of a broad range of literary genres and critical fields. Supported by teaching staff who are actively engaged in both critical and creative writing, you'll develop a theoretically informed understanding of the relation between different forms of critical and creative writing.

Throughout the course, you'll have opportunities to explore areas of personal interest and participate in workshops to hone your skills in diverse forms of writing.

You'll also produce an independent research project, through which you can specialise in creative or critical writing, or combine both, according to your interests.
