Course content

This course offers a unique opportunity for students to pursue an independent writing project in their chosen literary form. Their development as writers is supported by a specialist tutor, who facilitates a combination of weekly workshops (large and small) and personal supervision.

This course will suit the kind of student who has a strong and developed idea for their writing, and who would like personalised support in a small, select group of writers. This course prepares students keen to develop to PhD level, and there is an opportunity to take part in the Creative Writing PhD research as practice collaborative study days.

Students will also complete the Research Methods and Professional Practice modules across the first two terms of their course alongside students enrolled on the MA in Creative Writing (modular).

The course consists of group workshops and one-to-one tutorials. Then as part of the Professional Practice modules, a number of professional writers visit the course throughout the academic year, culminating in the Lancaster Words Festival, giving talks in their specialist genres, hosting workshops to stimulate new work or providing insight and advice in areas of prose fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction and other literary forms.

Students develop an independent project up to 30,000 words, and a reflective essay up to 5,000 words.
