University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD Lampeter and Carmarthen)
Creative and Script Writing
This programme is designed for committed writers who wish to complete significant pieces of work and generally broaden their experience as writers; the overall aim is to equip students with the ability to hone their writing skills and to develop areas of creativity at an advanced level, while the practical benefits offered by the schemes enable students to pursue careers as professional writers, editors and publishers as well as those roles which command an excellent command of language; a focus on the ability to communicate clearly through precise language prepares students for a range of careers, from writing-based advertising or journalism, to related professions such as publishing, publicity or arts administration; students are also able to apply the knowledge and skills acquired on the courses to teach others these skills, whether it be in schools, colleges or in the community.
A 2.1 degree in creative writing or a cognate discipline (those with a 2.2 are considered for entry to a postgraduate diploma in the 1st instance); other applicants without a 1st degree but with a level of experience are also encouraged to apply; in all cases a writing sample and interview forms the major part of the application process.
All years: approaches to creative writing; writing workshop (research and writing); writing workshop (writing and context); writers world; screenwriting; creative project (dissertation).
There are no examinations; assessments are by logs, journals, treatments, reviews proposals.
