Course content

This forward-thinking and industry-relevant MA offers creative writers the opportunity to not only develop advanced writing skills, but also a solid understanding of the different ways in which writers can now engage with the publishing industry.

Offering both full-time and part-time routes, this innovative MA equips you with the knowledge and skills to take your writing into the commercial marketplace in both print and digital formats. You will develop creative writing across a variety of forms, with a focus on transmedia storytelling and the skills to independently publish your work working as a publisher; learning and applying skills in editing, PR and marketing (including digital marketing), design, production, and budgeting. 

You will also analyse the cultural and critical influences on the writer and publishing industry, as well as your own practice, thus honing the skills, knowledge and understanding to progress to further research at doctoral level, if desired. 

By the end of the course, graduates will be able to write creatively and effectively, to publishable standard, for a variety of different audiences and media. Central to the MA is the university’s own publishing press, Fresher Publishing, which provides you with the opportunity to work on real-life publishing projects.

You can also engage with the university’s annual international creative writing competitions: The Fresher Writing Prize for emerging voices in fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction, and the New Media Writing Prize for stories that integrate a variety of formats, platforms and digital media.

Tutors on the MA are not only experienced writers/practitioners, but have also acquired Master’s degrees and/or doctorates in Creative Writing or English themselves, and thus are proven in their ability to teach, encourage and support you as you develop your work to Master’s and, hopefully, publishable quality. Our academics are supported by prestigious guest tutors from the world of writing and publishing.

Careers

Learned skills will be put into practice in group publishing projects for the university’s own publishing press, Fresher Publishing.
