Course summary

The MA Prose Fiction at UEA is the oldest and most prestigious Creative Writing programme in the UK. Uniquely focused on the writing of fiction, we take a rigorous and creative approach to enable you to develop your ideas, voice, technique and craft.

Prepare to experience an intensive immersion in the study of writing prose fiction. You will take core creative modules, but can also choose from a wide range of critical courses, and benefit from our proven strengths in modernism and creative-critical studies, among others.

Graduates of our MA Creative Writing Prose Fiction have enjoyed unparalleled success in terms of publications and prizes. Our alumni include: Nobel Laureate Kazuo Ishiguro, Bailey’s Prize-winner Naomi Alderman, Emma Healey and Tash Aw. Our continuing success means we are fortunate in being able to attract the best writers from around the world.

While you are at UEA, the focus will very much be on exploring your creative potential, in a highly supportive and well-resourced environment.

In 2011 UEA’s Creative Writing programme was awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education in recognition of our continuing excellence in delivering innovative courses at a world-class level.

ABOUT

Our course will lift you as a writer. You will learn how to write, how to read and how to edit.

You will study the craft of prose fiction with an internationally excellent cohort of other writers, and you’ll be taught by outstanding and committed faculty, alongside internationally recognised visiting writers – recent examples include Margaret Atwood, Ali Smith, Caryl Phillips and Ian Rankin.

We will challenge you to explore your notions about writing and being a writer, as well as provoking you into play, experimentation and risk.

After this intensive year, you will leave the course confident of technique and craft, as well as your own voice. It’s no wonder that our students' success is unparalleled with many of our graduates going on to publish their own work – with others moving into publishing, journalism or teaching.
