Course summary

Find your voice and discover your own creative writing path through studying with us at DMU. By embedding stimulating themes throughout our distinctive course structure we give you the opportunity to develop skills across fiction, poetry, memoir, the graphic novel, screenwriting, non-fiction, audio and performance writing, concrete poetry and new media. The joint honours option includes Film Studies which offers you the chance to go beyond the viewing experience to explore film as an art form, as a social institution, and as a business.The value of Joint Honours Creative Writing is that your writing stays fresh, whilst receiving additional impetus (and skills) from a complimentary academic discipline. Your writing needs to be fed ideas and varied stimuli, and all the Joint pathways are carefully chosen because they enhance your writing practice.You’ll examine the relationship between word, image, and sound and, by the end of your course, you won’t just be writing – you’ll also be producing your own professional-standard publications. As a final confidence boost we include final-year voice coaching to help you leave DMU as a self-assured public performer.**Key Features:*** Become part of regional writing networks and perform and publish your work through events such as our book fair, States of Independence, DMU’s Cultural eXchanges festival, and take advantage of spoken word events.* You’ll learn from successful working writers and industry professionals. Recent guest speakers include our visiting professor, poet and novelist Benjamin Zephaniah, novelist Mahsuda Snaith, literary agent Oli Munson and non-fiction author Damian Le Bas.* Gain practical skills in confident performing, audio recording, and technical skills in digital/print publishing* We’ll help you to experiment and push beyond your comfort zone and produce podcasts, audio-visual pieces and multimedia digital work.* Work beyond classroom boundaries in a variety of stimulating settings to promote creativity, including urban walk workshops, museum trips and ghost story workshops in a deconsecrated chapel.* We’re ranked in the top 10 creative writing courses in the UK for graduate prospects (Complete University Guide 2020).* Take part in an overseas trip with DMU Global, our international experience programme. On a walking tour of Berlin we asked students to consider the theme of borders and exile, while others held a scavenger hunt in the New York Public Library and another trip discovered Danish literature in Copenhagen.
