Creative Writing

This course covers a range of genres and provides students with guidance on publishing work, introducing students to national and international publications, publishing and broadcast media professionals and literary agents and editors. There is a special emphasis within the Department of English upon interdisciplinarity. Creative Writing as practice is studied alongside literature of the 20th and 21st Centuries and in relation to other cultural products in different media; for example, the comparative development of creative writing and film. Students benefit from regular writing workshops, research seminars and visits from distinguished scholars and speakers.
