If you are applying to a masters course in the department of Literature, Film, and Theatre Studies you must provide a piece of critical academic writing (2,500 words) on a topic relevant to your application.
This will invigorate your own practice, whether you are writing psychogeography, plays, novels, stories or something else.
You will choose from a variety of modules, covering topics such as: Our teaching staff are experienced and established writers who have a breadth of experience across literary genres, from novels, prose and plays, to poetry and song.
Our challenging, practice-based course offers you a unique approach to the practice of writing, emphasising innovation and experimentation in your work.
On our MA Creative Writing, you deepen your knowledge of literary tradition, exploring different modes and genres in order to develop your own creative and expressive written skills.
We also offer options in playwriting, poetry, screenwriting and creative non-fiction, and practical opportunities to learn about publishing, producing and editing creative work.
Entry to the course is based on the submission of a portfolio of creative work, and candidates whose work shows promise will be invited for interview.
We have a growing list of published and prizewinning authors whose work started life in our seminars.
If you have been writing creatively for a while and feel the need for professional support and feedback and the guidance of published authors and a cohort of like-minded people, then this course is for you.
