Course summary

The BA (Hons) English Literature with Creative Writing invites you to engage with contemporary subjects in literary studies such as micro-memoir in autobiography, Gothic horror in young adult fiction, and the apocalyptic imagination in twenty-first century writing. You will have the opportunity to create a portfolio of published work, including poems, short stories, scripts, flash fiction, and novellas, and to enter exclusive writing competitions, such as the Student New Angle Prize. Classes are delivered by published, award-winning authors, active researchers and HEA-accredited lecturers.

Supported by an expert teaching team, you will develop your writing talents, follow your interests, and share your love of literature. Throughout the degree you will also have a chance to develop professional skills by collaborating with regional arts organisations, publishers, theatre companies and community groups, such as the New Wolsey Theatre, the Ipswich Institute, the East Anglian Daily Times, and the Red Rose Chain. Our graduates have found employment as editors, copywriters, teachers, writers and poets, or have pursued postgraduate studies and an academic career.

Career opportunities

The BA (Hons) English Literature with Creative Writing offers two professional practice modules: Education Research and Practice and Professional Writing Research and Practice. Students may undertake these modules in their final year of study to enhance employability skills and build effective relationships with writing practitioners, local schools, businesses and arts organisations.
