Course summary

The MA in Creative Writing offers you the opportunity to study fiction and poetry (exclusively or together) along with optional modules in translation, and writing and the environment. Designed with serious, ambitious writers in mind, our programme uses seminars, tutorials, workshops, and precise editing to enable you to take control of your own work and write exciting, contemporary material. Many career paths can benefit from the writing and analytical skills that you develop as a postgraduate student in the School of English. Our students have gone on to work in academia, journalism, broadcasting and media, publishing, writing and teaching; as well as more general areas such as banking, marketing analysis and project management.

This programme aims to: provide you with the opportunity to obtain a postgraduate qualification (MA) in one year, and to allow you, if required, a smooth transition to doctoral studies; extend and deepen your understanding of your own writing practice through coursework and research; enable you to develop an historical awareness of literary and creative writing traditions; develop your independent critical thinking and judgement; develop your independent creative thinking and practice; develop your understanding and critical appreciation of the expressive resources of language; enable you to make connections across your various modules and transfer knowledge between modules; provide you with teaching, workshops and other learning opportunities that are informed by current research and practice and that require you to engage with aspects of work and practice at the frontiers of knowledge.
