Graduate equipped to launch your career as a publishing writer and teacher of writing. Year One of this two-year programme is identical to our world-renowned MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) and offers all the benefits of our internationally recognised workshop-based approach. You will attend weekly workshops, supported by individual tutorials and supplementary classes chosen from the full range of MA options in the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing.
Year Two will be structured on the model of the PhD, with one-to-one supervision of your work in progress, culminating in the submission of a full-length work for assessment: a complete novel or collection of short stories. In addition, you will attend classes in the teaching of creative writing and gain classroom experience on our undergraduate programme.
The MFA builds on our extensive connections with publishers and agents, ensuring you graduate ready to make the next step in your career.
