Course summary

Course Overview

The MA Creative Writing with English Literary Studies provides the opportunity to combine creative and critical writing at Masters level. It’s your chance to learn from prize-winning, practising authors such as Jenn Ashworth, Zoe Lambert and Eoghan Walls who lead our long-established Creative Writing scheme and to engage with a vibrant literary culture.

During your studies you will have the opportunity to develop strategies for initiating new work, explore verbal textures and narrative structures, and enhance your knowledge of literary forms and conventions. You will be encouraged to hone your critical and creative skills, employ reflective practice, and learn the art of redrafting, revision and close editing. The nature of research within creative writing practice will also be considered as you evolve your own creative and critical portfolio.

This degree will be useful if you are considering a career or wish to advance your career in journalism, publishing, reading development, community arts or public relations, and it is a good preparation for PhD research. You will have the opportunity to develop critical, analytical, close reading and editing skills that will also enhance your employability.

Part time and full time study options are available.
