Course summary

Writing is a profession and a passion; it is also an act of community. Warwick’s MA in Writing introduces you to the real world of writing, surrounded and supported by writing staff and students sharing your ambition. It shows you how to make your way in the world as a writer.

Teaching

We teach in writing workshops, seminars and one-to-one supervisions. Most modules are assessed by portfolios of writing in the relevant genre, sometimes with an accompanying essay. Space for reading, thinking and writing matters almost as much as teaching. Our campus is a good place for writers, with a wide range of creative spaces and events open throughout the year.

An annual anthology

Each year, the MA group produce an anthology of new writing derived from work done during their time at e latest volume, Chimera, was launched at an evening of celebratory readings at the Piccadilly branch of Waterstone's in June 2019. You will get the chance to be involved in the production, editing, writing, and promotion of a new anthology, seeing your work in print and gaining some invaluable hands-on experience along the way.

A career in writing

Our staff have excellent links not only with other writers but also with publishing houses, literary journals and agencies, with national and regional organizations such as the Arts Council, PEN and the Royal Literary Fund, and with other creative writing programmes both in Britain and in the USA.

Many of our alumni have forged highly successful writing careers and picked up major national and international prizes: recent examples include Sophie Mackintosh's novel The Water Cure, Katy Whitehead winning the 2017 Fitzcarraldo Essay Prize, and Sohini Basak's debut collection We Live in the Newness of Small Differences winning the 2016 Beverly Series.

At Warwick Thursdays, our weekly literary and cultural salon, you will encounter creative practitioners (typically including writers, filmmakers, literary translators, visual artists) and indsutry guests (typically including publishers, agents, journalists), gaining an insight into a range of possible careers in the creative industries.
