Course summary

The written word enters every part of our lives, from novels to text messages. Worldwide, multi-billion pound industries depend upon new voices and fresh perspectives to form the books and films of tomorrow.Creative writers need to be skilled in the art of imaginative expression, but they also need to understand how literature works and to learn from what has been done before. The creative writing portion of your course will teach you how to present creative work to a professional standard. You will learn editing techniques, how to research a story and how to turn life experiences into gripping reading. You will have the opportunity to specialise in genres including writing for young adults, visual text (such as graphic novels), innovative poetry, and writing for theatre or TV.The English portion will equip you with the key skills and analytical tools needed for literary study. It will encourage you to explore social and cultural issues raised in a range of literary works, serving to feed and inspire your creative writing and make it strong, rigorous and exciting.We have strong links with industry professionals and a history of student success in publishing their work. Graduates from this course have progressed on to a number of career paths including publishing, journalism, teaching, community arts work and freelance writing as well as further postgraduate study.
