      In Depth

      What will I study?

      The course is designed to enable you to become a versatile, skilled and self-reflective writer. It encourages you to find your own creative voice, developing a creative practice that is professional and adaptable and extending your knowledge of contemporary writing and its relevance to your own work. You will also gain a critical awareness of a range of markets for your writing and discover how to submit your work for publication or production.

      You will write, critically reflect upon, and revise your work to hone your creative and editorial skills, as well as reading widely to explore the techniques and approaches of published writers.

      Year 1 introduces you to the art of writing fiction, poetry and script, and outlines the business of writing. You will explore your writing practice through a series of exercises and writing experiments, start keeping a writer’s journal and begin to engage with the wider world as a writer. In addition, you will practice how to construct your own fictional worlds. Your first year provides a solid foundation for your development as a writer.

      Year 2 extends and deepens your creative abilities through writing short stories, innovative poetry, and scripts for the stage. You will also study the publishing industry and obtain a greater understanding of the creative industries and the role of the professional creative writer by either taking on a placement or participating in the creation of a group project. Your growing skills as a writer and your broader experience of the range of forms of creative writing prepare you for your final year and for greater creative freedom.

      With a more distinct, developed voice and enhanced creative skills in Year 3, you will write a longer piece of work in your preferred medium (for example, fiction, poetry, script or game). Optional modules enable you to focus on longer work in fiction, pursue further experimentation in poetic style, work on more complex stories or the chapters of a novel, engage in writing scripts for film and television, or enhance your skills and strategies as a playwright.

      How will I study?

      Teaching and learning is centred on the writer’s workshop, where your writing will improve through practical exercises and the analysis of existing work. The workshop is a vital element in your development as a writer and your participation through self and peer appraisal will provide opportunities for improving your work and commenting constructively on that of fellow writers.

      Working individually, in pairs and in larger groups, you will analyse your own and other writers’ creative practice. You will learn the habits and methods of a professional writer through activities such as keeping a writer’s journal, research and observation, re-drafting and editing, and presenting work to a high standard.

      There are also opportunities to undertake work-based learning through independent and employability-focused projects. Past projects have included setting up and running an online literary magazine, writing and producing a play, and developing and delivering a series of creative writing workshops in schools.

      How will I be assessed?

      All modules are assessed by coursework, which includes creative practice, critical practice, essays and a reflection on the creative process.

      There are no formal written examinations as part of the current assessment methods on this programme.

      Who will be teaching me?

      You will be taught by tutors who are practising, professional writers. They include widely produced and published novelists, short-story writers, poets, dramatists and games writers. The programme team are also practising researchers and scholars, publishing work in a variety of academic and literary journals. This means that you will be taught by people who know how to succeed in the creative industries as well as academia. There will also be opportunities to meet with a range of guest speakers and visiting lecturers.

      A Great Study Environment

      Three students sat round a table by a window study a laptop while working in the Hub.

      The Department of English, History and Creative Writing is based in the Main Building at the centre of the campus, near the £26m Catalyst building which includes the University library.

      A prime example of 1930s architecture, the Main Building has undergone extensive refurbishment to combine a traditional setting with modern facilities, including the £15m Student Hub.

      The building includes lecture theatres, seminar and tutorial rooms, which are ideal for group discussions and one-to-one tuition, as well as IT resources and social learning spaces.

      As a Creative Writing student at Edge Hill University, you will have the opportunity to attend workshops and readings with a variety of guest writers at the Arts Centre. Close links have also been established with Liverpool’s Everyman Theatre as well as other poetry venues across Merseyside.

      The University hosts the annual Edge Hill Short Story Prize and runs a number of research groups, as well as events, and has recently set up the Edge Hill University Press, which offers students the opportunity of internships working on the editorial team. You may also wish to get involved with editing the student online literary magazine, The Black Market Re-View.
