Creative Writing

MA Creative Writing is a Masters degree for practising writers who wish to hone their craft and focus on contemporary approaches to writing.

Immersed in the forms, techniques and literary contexts of writing, you will develop your own poetics and philosophy of composition, underpinned by knowledge of the publishing industries, as you work towards producing an extended manuscript intended for possible publication.

Alternatively, there is also the opportunity to explore aspects of creative writing in depth on our MRes Masters by Research or PhD Doctor of Philosophy.
