Why study MA Creative Writing and Education at Goldsmiths?

This is a Masters in Creative Writing like no other. If you want to thrive as a creative writer and are passionate about learning, then this unique postgraduate programme is for you. You will not only progress exponentially as a writer, but also learn how to research and teach writing in a wide range of contexts. You will study how writing can be used in dynamic, real-world settings such as charities, prisons, schools, creative and mental health organisations, and the cultural/corporate sector.

The programme will provide you with an invaluable toolbox of writing, teaching, and research strategies that will help you personally and professionally. You will grow as a writer, and gain skills and experience which could open doors to creative professions such as publishing and arts management, as well as roles in educational institutions.

We have a number of partnerships with high profile creative and educational organisations including First Story, Apples and Snakes, the British Library, Ministry of Stories, and the Poetry Society. Our students have previously taken part in performances, poetry and writing workshops, drama productions, and creative research projects for these institutions, as well as getting paid to work in schools, hospitals, and charities. You may may also have access to innovative work placement programmes with First Story and the Ministry of Stories, developed exclusively for Goldsmiths.
