Course summary

**This course is primarily designed for face to face learning with you attending your lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the Campus is closed TEC Partnership will continue to deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted with some lessons happening in small groups and others happening using online sessions and support.**BA (Hons) Professional and Creative Writing is more than just a creative writing degree. Alongside short stories and novels, you will have the opportunity to learn how to write scripts for television, film, radio, games and comics, as well as non-fiction books and articles, developing a wide-ranging skillset and portfolio. You will focus on creative writing in professional contexts, covering how to advance writing skills with topics such as plot structure and character development, alongside tailoring writing style and format to meet the requirements of specific publications and contexts. You will be encouraged to view yourself as a freelance writer during the programme (although this is optional). Many of your assignments are designed so that you can directly submit them to professional companies for potential publishing or production. You will also benefit from publishing and production opportunities in-house and through our industry contacts, for example we have had students’ short stories in professional anthologies, students’ scripts produced by our FD Television Production students, and students working as scriptwriters and journalists for Estuary TV (a TV channel that’s run directly from the university). Our students have also gained internships with local and national newspapers, magazines and publishers. You will begin the degree with a love for writing and have the potential to graduate as a professional.
