The course caters for teachers and educators who are keen to develop as both writers and educational practitioners. The MA Writer/Teacher develops insights into creative writing practices that provide a critical perspective on relations and discourses of teaching and learning in contemporary education.
The programme enables students to establish and strengthen their identity as writers and educators in informal and formal learning contexts (eg Writing Workshop and project based dissertation). You'll develop strong writing skills to a potentially publishable level and will be able to engage in sustained practical and theoretical research into writing practices. Practices of creative writing and practices of teaching and learning are brought into a productive relationship.
As part of the programme you'll rethink notions of writing pedagogy in a range of contexts, including local community sites. You may be given the opportunity to contribute to:
* performance poetry workshops and events conducted by Apples and Snakes
* poetry performances and sessions run by the Poetry Society
* drama projects created by The Complete Works
* writing projects developed by the English and Media Centre
* writing workshops in a range of forms led by the Ministry of Stories
* creative research projects run by the British Library
The programme will enable you to develop creative writing skills to a potentially publishable level, participate in local cultural events as writers, and develop advanced theoretical and critical skills in creative writing pedagogy.
