The MLitt in Creative Writing encourages the development of students' original work while providing intensive critical and creative study in poetry, prose or writing for performance. The course consists of two semesters with taught components followed by an individual creative writing project taking place over the whole year, but with particular focus during the last three months. Teaching methods include seminars, workshops and individual tutorials. Class sizes typically range from three to ten students, ensuring high levels of individual attention. Modules are assessed through coursework essays, original writing and the final dissertation. Writing for Performance students will participate in a number of theatre visits and will be required to meet costs of approximately £200.
