Course content

As part of the MA in Creative and Critical Writing, you will work with practicing and published writers to hone your craft and concentrate on your specific genre. Our staff will help you to develop your own distinctive voice and will advise on possible avenues to publication. Modules with a more academic focus allow you to engage with literary theory and academic studies of influential writers’ work.

This highly successful MA in Creative and Critical Writing was one of the first in the UK to offer modules dedicated to the theory and practice of teaching creative writing, and the theoretical and practical analysis of the creative process. These options complement the creative and critical strands of the degree and offer you the chance to become a writer prepared for the modern professional arenas in which you may find yourself.

There are opportunities to attend The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival, Ledbury Poetry Festival, and Hay Festival of Literature and the Arts. There are monthly public open readings, and there is a vibrant cultural life in Cheltenham and the surrounding county.
