Course summary

Our Creative Writing MA offers a distinctive and flexible pattern of study. This is ideal if you're looking to extend or develop your interests in creative writing. Taught by award-winning authors with specialisms in fiction, poetry, non-fiction and scriptwriting, you will learn the craft of creative writing whilst exploring the theory behind it.

Course overview

This programme offers a great opportunity to join our thriving literary community and grow your creative potential. You will develop your skills as a writer and explore the theory and practice of writing in the contemporary world through a combination of taught modules, independent study, writing and research.

You will have the opportunity to develop employability skills, work on a publication, and complete your own final project where you work on a longer portfolio in depth, supervised by a dedicated member of staff.

The portfolio project is an opportunity for independent and in-depth development of a writing project, supervised by a writer on the team, and supported by three workshops. The course is enhanced by a range of further opportunities including a writing retreat, an opportunity to meet with an agent/publisher/editor and a wealth of brilliant events through the York Literature Festival.

You will have the opportunity for one-to-one sessions with your tutors every term. The final project is independent and is a chance to invest in a project of your choice.
