Course summary

Our BA Hons Creative Writing degree will give you the chance to learn about and practice writing techniques and apply those skills in original and imaginative ways.

Students will:

  • Explore a range of narrative, drama, and poetry, looking closely at the composition, drafting, editing, and polishing of pieces of writing
  • Explore writing practice as well as engagement with the processes of textual production undertaken by existing writers across a period of times and genres
  • Develop and demonstrate analytical skills through the essay form and your own practice
  • Gain essential skills, qualifications and experience to start a career in a wide range of professions
  • Develop a good understanding of industry practice and will benefit from Glyndwr’s memorandum of agreement with Literature Wales

Coursework is the most important kind of assessment for Creative Writing. It is the quality of the final written product that counts, in terms of creativity, originality, and technical proficiency in the use of language. In addition, you will be expected to show accompanying evidence of creative and technical processes, knowledge of reader or client considerations as well as self-critical reflection at various stages of the writing process. The majority of assessment will take the form of portfolios of finished written products, accompanied by critical and discursive accounts of the practices and processes leading to the final submission of written work.

All teaching methods are designed to focus your attention on your own creative and technical development as a writer, to develop skills and confidence in critical reflection as a basis for improving drafts, and breadth of expertise as a producer as well as critic of literature and text in general.

Within the text-focussed modules the aim is to develop your knowledge, analytical capability, research skills, and confidence in your own writing. The lecture provides subject knowledge, critical approaches to interpretation of literary texts and guidance for discussion and development of different writing styles. The content of lectures and seminars are determined by the module level, with level 4 modules being largely introductory while modules at levels 5 and 6 will be focussed on more in-depth studies of authors and literary periods. The level 4 module Personal, Professional and Academic Skills provides you with a variety of skills and approaches to enable you to become effective learners and which prepares you for your subject studies.

The Careers & Zone at Wrexham Glyndŵr University is there to help you make decisions and plan the next steps towards a bright future.

Creative Writing incorporates a wide range of highly transferable skills and gaining a degree in Creative Writing indicates a high level of competence in graduates. Students may choose to extend their skills further by undertaking further study at Masters level or vocational courses such as teaching or information management.

Creative Writing graduates work in the Creative Industries, teach at various levels, write or engage in editorial work, work in publishing, marketing or advertising.
