Creative Writing (Non-Fiction)
You will normally have a UK honours degree (in any subject) or the overseas equivalent. But successful completion of a certificate course in creative writing, or a professional qualification, or relevant experience may also be acceptable. The prime criteria are proven ability and commitment.
You will need to submit 5,000 words of non-fiction and may need to attend an interview as part of the application process. (Overseas applicants may be interviewed by telephone.)
Modules: fundamentals of non-fiction; the process of writing; storytelling; literary criticism; complete book.
Teaching is based around a mix of practical workshops, seminars and lectures. All this is supported by one-to-one tutorials and by independent study: notably reading and preparing presentations on set texts and performing set writing exercises. As the course progresses, the emphasis shifts to independent study and is supported by workshops and one-to-one tutorials.
Central to all three Creative Writing MA courses is the requirement to finish a full-length novel, memoir, play or screenplay. The course culminates in a showcase of your work to an audience of industry professionals and other interested parties.
