Course content

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.

Students are required to take workshops, attend courses of lectures, and take one special subject or specialist writing workshop, while continuing to develop their own individual work throughout the year.
