Course summary

Why choose this course

Surrey’s MA Creative Writing is about more than just words. It’s a pathway to finding your own unique literary voice.

Drawing on the experience of our published writers and academics, you’ll engage with intriguing literary theories and writing techniques, and discover how to find your niche and engage with the publishing world. As part of our School of Literature and Languages, you’ll share ideas within a diverse, creative community and be able to attend a calendar of events that will broaden your thinking and develop your writing skills – this includes the annual Surrey New Writers’ Festival and Surrey Poetry Festival.

What you will study

Our MA Creative Writing course encourages lateral thought and will sharpen your research and writing abilities.

You may join us as a relatively new writer, wanting to experiment with a range of forms and discover your voice and genre. Alternatively, you may arrive with a more advanced project you want to develop further. Either way, the extensive experience of our published writers and academics, including our Distinguished Writer-in-Residence and Poet in Residence, will help you hone your technical ability, and deepen your understanding of the cultural, literary and theoretical history of text production.

Careers and graduate prospects

We offer careers information, advice and guidance to all students whilst studying with us, which is extended to our alumni for three years after leaving the University.

As an English literature or creative writing student, you’ll build a network of industry contacts by working alongside published writers and editors. Our courses are a stepping stone into a career in writing, communications, publishing, marketing, advertising, journalism and teaching.
