With a full programme of workshops and critical study, this MA provides a forum for you to work on your own writing in different genres while being supported by published practitioners. The Writers' Workshop will encourage you to develop your writing 'voice' in fiction or creative non-fiction, while the Special Study module enables you to specialise in poetry, drama or screen writing.
This MA aims to give you the knowledge and confidence to enter the cultural debate and to begin to identify outlets for your own writing.
What will you study?
You will have the opportunity to develop your creative writing skills in general, or specialise in a chosen genre. You will also study literary criticism and theory and will look at the professional elements of writing, such as copy-editing and how to get your work published.
