Creative Writing is one of the longest established postgraduate courses of its kind in the UK, with a strong record of publication by its graduates. Designed for talented and committed writers, the course is taught by a team of award-winning writers and academics.
You will be joining a lively community of other writers and teachers where you will have the opportunity to work in a variety of genres, including fiction, poetry, children’s and young adult fiction, and writing for radio, stage and screen.
A good honours degree (minimum 2.2); applications are primarily assessed on the quality of the writing sample and statement.
Submit a 3000-word creative writing sample, OR c. 100 lines of poetry, OR an equivalent mixture of poetry and prose/script.
Evidence in personal statement of a commitment to writing.
What made you choose NTU?
“NTU stood out to me at the open day I attended, it was the first university where the head lecturer sat down with me and answered all of the questions I had about the course. Rory seemed genuinely interested in my writing and how NTU could help me improve.”
What do you enjoy most about your course at NTU?
“I love how you can choose your units. A lot of the courses I looked at meant that I had to study all forms of prose and poetry – typically by era which doesn’t interest me. NTU gives me the freedom to study what I want to advance in as well as giving me chance to learn writing theory in the core module. I don’t feel limited at NTU which is lovely.”
Why would you recommend your course / NTU to someone looking to study in that area?
“It’s one of the longest established creative writing courses so that leaves it in good standing. You’re given more freedom at NTU, plus the anthology that the students self-publish at the end of the course means we leave with a publishing credit. It’s a student-led project so we have complete control over what happens. It’s a great insight into publishing process.”
How do you think the course, and having a postgraduate qualification, will help you to progress your career?
“It makes me feel more confident in my abilities already, so I can’t wait for how I’ll feel by the end of the course! It puts me in good standing to work within the English community and will hopefully allow me to progress into doing an English Literature doctorate in a few years’ time.”
