Summary

Offering you the flexibility to pursue a generalist or specialist degree pathway, our Creative Writing MA (Modular) is taught by prize-winning, practising writers and is part of the longest-established Creative Writing scheme in the country. You will be part of a vibrant literary community, honing your critical and creative skills whilst engaging with visiting writers and publishing professionals.
The generalist pathway offers a free choice of modules in prose fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction and dramatic forms, whilst the specialist pathway in Poetry, Prose Fiction or Creative Non-Fiction sees two of four modules, and a creative project, focusing on your chosen specialism. All students deliver a research-based talk at our annual MA Showcase - previous events have been held in partnership with Lancaster LitFest and the Dukes theatre.
Your core modules are Research Methods and Professional Practice, which examine the professional and ethical issues around creative writing and help you to develop your reflective practice skills. Elective modules explore a wide range of literary fields and genres, including psychogeographies, short fiction, poetry, landscape writing, the lyric essay, and radio drama. Each module features readings, practical presentations on form, genre and technique, peer feedback (verbal and written), and tutor recommendations on how to develop your own work.
Your postgraduate degree equips you with a portfolio of work and prepares you for PhD research as well as careers in journalism, publishing, literature and reading development, community arts and public relations. Many of our students have gone on to publish works of fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction. The critical, analytical, close reading and editing skills developed through your studies will also enhance your employability.
Part time and full time study options are available.
