Course summary

Develop your portfolio of writing in our prestigious programme designed for emerging and more experienced writers.

Expand your creative writing abilities and ideas with our MA in Creative Writing, designed to evolve your knowledge and perfect your writing skills in one or more literary genres.

Mastering the ability to produce literary works of refinement and skill, you’ll be encouraged to submit work for both publication and showcasing as a developing professional writer.

Our Creative Industries Day and Creative Writing Visiting Writers Series are programmed with you in mind. As a student with us, you will attend workshops, experience classes in various topics in creative writing and develop your own practice in editing and revision.

A trailblazer for Creative Writing in the UK, we nurture new talent with Open Mic nights and our Visiting Writer programme while poetry and literature ring across the city in initiatives such as Cardiff Poetry Experiment. Academics and creatives shed new light on our greatest literary works in our public book club with a difference, Cardiff Book Talk.

A highlight remains our residential writing retreat, enabling you to focus on a range of writing techniques and to present your own creative work in a supportive environment.

You can also make the most of opportunities to gain experience in creative writing teaching for undergraduates.

At Cardiff, we are intrigued by the connections between literature, popular culture and theory. Our English Literature experts teach across the whole chronological span, from Middle English to literature of the twenty-first century, bringing latest research into a varied module portfolio. English Literature at Cardiff is ranked in the world top 100 (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2020).
