This course is unique among creative writing programmes nationally in its provision of modules in a wide range of genres. It interacts with our other postgraduate offerings in Literature and Publishing, Drama and Theatre, and Film, building on our strengths in the teaching of writing for page and stage, screen, journalism and other media. Our teaching takes the form of small-group workshops which cultivate self-directed learning and a highly beneficial project-led environment, helping our students combine a broader acquisition of skills in various areas of writing with opportunities for specialization. The course is open to applicants from any disciplinary background, within and beyond Arts, and welcomes all types of writing interests. A ‘Qualifier’ option is available for potential applicants who do not have a university degree but have a suitable publications record or sufficient experience in a related creative field.
