Summary

Our MA Creative Writing will give you the rare opportunity to improve your writing by practising and sharing it with a close group of fellow writers, including specialist lecturers who are published authors.

You will study the most acclaimed writers of the past 200 years and discover the techniques they used to make their writing stand out. Our in-class and extra-curricular exercises will allow you to practise your technique with different forms of writing and in areas such as characterisation, structure, and pacing.

Using what you have learned, you will create samples of your writing to share with your lecturers and fellow students, allowing you to receive a wide range of responses to your work as well as learning to critically evaluate the work of others.

Our optional modules will give you the chance to explore topics from publishing to Renaissance drama and, at the end of the course, you can choose a piece of writing to develop in depth on our Major Project module.

Throughout the course, you will get advice and support from our team of specialists, including Course Leader Dr Tiffani Angus, Dr Helen Marshall (Gifts for the One Who Comes After) and Dr Una McCormack (Star Trek – The Missing; Doctor Who: An Eye for Murder) as well as our Royal Literary Fund Fellows.

You will also have access to talks, masterclasses, and networking opportunities with agents, publishers, and other established writers, including many events organised by our Centre for Science Fiction and Fantasy.
