The Warwick MA in Writing is intended for students who are already experienced as well as ambitious practising writers, whether published or not. We don’t believe that creativity, as such, can be taught, or that it is only fulfilled in ‘the marketplace’, but we do aim to help develop technical writing skills which students will find useful professionally, whether in full-time authorship or in related professions such as publishing, the media, or teaching.

Course content and methods of teaching and assessment involve a mixture of approaches based on workshops and 1:1 supervision, portfolios and longer written projects. Students may opt to take modules based on more traditional academic pedagogies.

At least as important as teaching are the space and stimulus to write within a community of people with similar aspirations, facing similar practical, imaginative and intellectual problems. The literary community at Warwick is a scholarly as well as a creative one: the University is the most highly ranked research institution, nationally, to offer such a degree. Much of the value of the course comes from students’ working on the University campus and making use of the full range of activities which it offers.
