Writers should begin the degree with an idea they are burning to realise. This is a particularly focused degree and we are looking for candidates who have written in short form but never attempted a novel, or who have written a work of novel length but want to start again and improve their working practice. A good first degree and strong sample submission are the only requirements for entry. However, the individual journey that you want to take is important and so that we can meet expectations candidates will be selected by interview and on the strength of their work.

I selected the Creative Writing First Novel MA as it's specifically designed for those who are attempting to write their first novel. It is a very small cohort of writers, which not only allows us all to get to know each other's work, but also allows for close contact with the tutors.
I gained an insight into the inner workings of the novel, a greater understanding of the writing process, along with the confidence to write.
It's a valuable opportunity to hone your writing skills and gain support and feedback from experienced, established authors and tutors, as well as sharing the writing experience with your peers on the course.
