This flexible learning scheme offers the chance to develop book-length manuscript under the guidance of university tutors and prize-winning writers.

Entry requirements

Assessment methods

Assessment is based on your writing project which will be a book-length manuscript and may be a novel, short stories or poetry. The critical study, of around 10,000 words, may be on any writer, movement, genre or theme relevant to your creative project, as agreed with the Director of Studies.
