This course, the first Masters programme in creative writing in an Irish university, was offered for the first time in 1997/98. It is based in the Oscar Wilde Centre for Irish Writing, 21 Westland Row, the birthplace of Oscar Wilde.

The course is intended for students who are seriously committed to writing, are practising, or prospective authors and who wish to develop their writing within the framework of a university course and in the context of an Irish literary milieu. It involves the close and critical examination of the students' work in group workshops and under guided personal tuition, with the study also of the professional techniques of book editing and publishing, and the opportunity to explore the cultural and literary contexts of writing in Ireland.

Applicants, who are expected to have a university degree or equivalent qualification, are selected on the basis of a submitted portfolio of recent creative work. The guideline is for 12 pages of prose (short stories, excerpt from a novel or drama) or 6-8 poems; genres may be combined. There is no concentration in the course on any particular genre. The focus is exclusively on the individual student's strengths.

You are supported by an experienced supervisory team with expertise in your chosen area of study who will work with you on a one-to-one basis.

Initial discussion between you and your supervisor establishes the focus and scope of the topic, and confirms the research questions to be addressed.

The supervisor helps you to conduct a literature survey, and engage with theoretical, methodological and critical issues relating to the topic. You are also be encouraged to attend workshops on research methods and approaches relevant to your project.

The course is designed as a flexible degree for those who need to combine work and professional development. Supervision sessions are arranged individually with your supervisory team ensuring that content is tailored to your individual needs.
