Course summary


Roehampton's MFA Creative Writing will support you in your ability to develop your writing, leading to the successful production of professional-standard, publishable work. This two year course is taught through online classrooms, allowing you to pursue your degree from anywhere around the world, and collaborate with peers globally.

You will participate in live, virtual classrooms via a specialised platform allowing you to think, communicate, and create in a truly contemporary, global forum. You will take a range of modules in your first year, from exploring how writers are blurring boundaries between original and curated work and how it is possible to present work for social media as well as for traditional publication/production, to the role played by archives in textual culture, accompanied by training sessions held in Roehampton's own university archive and co-facilitated by professional archivists.

We will give you the creative freedom to work in a combination of forms, rather than specifically choosing fiction or poetry, or screenwriting or creative nonfiction, and the thematic structure of the MFA allows flexibility, creativity and contemporary impact.

Whether you are aiming your writing at the printed page, the internet, art galleries or performance spaces, we will support you in meeting your intellectual, and creative needs and goals. You will learn to work to a brief, workshop ideas, respond to feedback, and share ideas in a supportive and collective manner, developing as you do so highly desirable transferrable skills. You will also evaluate and engage with the contemporary creative and critical landscapes in which you choose to locate your practice.
