Course summary

Summary

The MA in Creative Writing degree is designed for ambitious, committed writers who want to hone and develop their writing practice and develop their creative, critical and professional writing skills in preparation for careers in the creative industries. Roehampton was one of the first universities in London to offer an MA in Creative Writing when it was launched in 2005 and it remains dedicated to providing an innovative, unique curriculum, taught by world-leading academic staff and internationally renowned writers.

You will be able to explore three main forms of writing on this MA Creative Writing: Fiction, Poetry and Fiction for Young Readers. You will tailor your degree by selecting modules that align with your interests, with options that include the short story, the novel, lyric and alternative poetry, visual narratives and fiction for young adults.
