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. The department comprises of a closely bonded community of writers, each research student being supervised by a specialist writer-teacher. The programme offers the experience of mentoring with a specialist writer-teacher, supported by a second writer-supervisor and, by the creative writing methodology workshop. The workshop is convened and presided over by the research director and attended wherever possible by all creative writing staff. Each workshop is led either by a staff member or by an individual student, who has the chance to receive valuable feedback from the members. Writing is circulated by all before sessions, to be discussed and annotated by members. Students are asked to attend literary festivals and to report on them to the workshop. Students attend skills and training courses at college and university level. From the 2nd year there are opportunities to teach undergraduate tutorials and seminars, for which students receive training and payment.
