Course summary

Course Overview

Our Creative Writing MA (Modular) is taught by prize-winning, practising writers such as Paul Farley, Jenn Ashworth and Eoghan Walls, who lead our long-established Creative Writing scheme. You will be part of a vibrant literary community, honing your critical and creative skills whilst engaging with visiting writers and publishing professionals.

You will be able to choose from available modules in prose fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction and dramatic forms. All students have the opportunity to perform a creative work at our annual MA Showcase which is a lively and well attended celebration: previous events have been held in partnership with Lancaster LitFest and the Dukes theatre, Lancaster.

Your postgraduate degree equips you with a portfolio of work and prepares you for PhD research as well as careers in journalism, publishing, literature and reading development, community arts and public relations. Many of our students have gone on to publish works of fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction. You will have the opportunity to develop critical, analytical, close reading and editing skills that will also enhance your employability.
