Creative Writing

Our lively programme focuses on the craft of fiction, scriptwriting, poetry and writing for children through weekly writing workshops and literature seminars which engage in a close study of contemporary writing. We encourage collaboration with other art forms, allowing students to tap into our on-campus theatre and concert hall, the prestigious Winchester School of Art, and the research taking place in English and other disciplines. Visiting writers and editors deepen student understanding of the publishing world. The programme culminates in a creative writing dissertation developed in consultation with a published writer.
