Creative Writing (Novels)

The course is designed for writers with some experience who would now like to go the extra mile and complete a novel. We do not therefore teach or examine short stories. This is a course for people who want to write full-length novels. Most importantly, every year, an anthology of excerpts from all the students' novels is published in the final term: this is presented in a showcase evening and then distributed to every literary agent in London and, for overseas students, the agents in their home cities, as well (in the recent past our anthology has been sent to New York, Toronto and Sydney). At the end of the Creative Writing (Novels) MA course, you will be very different; you will have written a novel. The MA Creative Writing (Novels) allows you to focus on one of two areas: Literary Novels or Crime Thriller Novels. This course is designed to provide a supportive and thought-provoking, yet challenging, environment for novelists to develop their skills, experiment with approaches to writing, learn about the industry and, most importantly, complete a polished novel ready to send to publishers and agents. At the core of the Creative Writing (Novels) course is the experience of established writers. Everyone who teaches on this MA course is a working, published novelist.
