Creative Writing

On our Master of Arts (MA) Creative Writing programme, you will explore and practice techniques and styles of modern and contemporary writing and apply these through the development of your own creative work. MA students undertake a taught element blending writing workshops with reading units and an elective, and then complete their studies through submission of an extended piece of writing from a proposed full-length book. The MA is available to complete in one year full-time, or two years part-time/online. You will specialise in one of the following routes: Novel Writing (including Short Fiction); Poetry Writing; Writing for Children & Young Adults or Place Writing.
