Creative Writing

The inter-relationship between theory, scholarship and the creative process is key to the course; course comprises combination of students own creative writing with research into the genre or area of literature in which they are working, to gain insight into its history, development and contemporary practices; this might be genre in the more traditional sense, for example satire, fictional autobiography, verse drama, or particular traditions to which they feel their work relates, for example projective verse, post-modernist fiction; Caribbean poetics; also expected to engage with relevant contemporary debates about theory and practice.

Entry requirements
