Creative Writing

This research programme offers a choice from a spectrum of skills and a research dialogue across genres, from poetry and fiction to dramaturgy and screenwriting. We are a closely bonded community of writers, each research student being supervised by a specialist writer-teacher. One-to-one meetings take place every 3-4 weeks, or at the student's request. The corpus of research students meets in monthly staff-student Creative Writing Methodology Workshops. The Swansea Writing Programme offers its graduate writers an apprenticeship, with the precious time to dedicate oneself to learning a craft which, for all its mysteriousness, works according to techniques and rules which may only be creatively broken when they have been thoroughly understood. Swansea is especially proud of the intellectual rigour of its programme and research culture. Our team includes teacher-writers of world class stature and long experience.
