Course summary

The MLitt in Creative Writing course is for writers who wish to draw on the benefits of workshops with peers and tutors while developing their ideas. It combines the features of both a research-based and taught master’s course.

Throughout the course, creative industry experts lead core creative writing classes and skills-focused projects and workshops. Specialist related modules are available and the course comes to an end with a dissertation. This gives students the opportunity to work on an extended creative project which you will develop on a one-to-one basis with your tutor.

Assessment

Students will submit creative work for formal assessment in each of the core workshops. This will take the form of short fiction, poetry or playwriting, depending on the student's chosen area of specialisation.

Careers

Graduates from creative writing subjects at the University of Strathclyde have gone into writing, publishing, teaching, journalism and may other professions. Some graduates have also gone on to further their skills by undertaking a PhD. Other have chosen to become self-employed as tutors.

Writers who have taken masters and/or doctoral qualifications in creative writing at Strathclyde include Louise Welsh, Rachel Sieffert, Beatrice Colin and Colette Paul.
