Working with tutors and other writers on the course, you’ll develop your writing and build up a substantial body of work. Weekly workshops are taught by a strong team of published writers, and there are regular visits by literary agents, publishers, magazine editors and broadcasters, as well as other writers.

  • To understand literary form, style and genre, as relevant to your chosen form of writing
  • To acquire a variety of relevant writing techniques, and research techniques to support writing, and adapt them to your particular creative project.
  • To understand and respond creatively to questions arising from the subject-matter, themes, genres, traditions and other literary contexts with which your chosen manuscript is engaged.
  • To receive and give precise and sensitive critical feedback in workshop groups and one-to-one tutorials.
  • To respond creatively to feedback provided by tutors and other students, adapting that feedback to your particular vision of your book.
