Creative Writing

Course Description

Our MA in Creative Writing at Leeds Trinity was established in 2013, building on the success and popularity of our BA in English and Writing which has been running for several years. This MA puts the emphasis on "creative", giving you plenty of time to write and incorporating a creative element into every module.

The course aims to develop your writing skills in either prose or poetry, as well as fostering your creative and critical reading and exploring key issues relating to the publishing business.

(Student Profile)

Jo Jessop

Could you briefly explain your working day?

I am responsible for the planning, development and delivery of all internal/external communications, PR and marketing services and brand awareness and perception. Nationally, this is one of the first in-house PR and Marketing positions in a school and as a result I have been leading the way and have been approached by other schools to talk about the impact and benefits of having an in-house expert.

What are your next steps and ambitions?

To continue to grow and become an outstanding practitioner and be an inspirational female leader who is mentoring and motivating others.

How did studying at Leeds Trinity help you reach your current position?

I can't quite believe it now, I was once a shy and nervous person! The community and family atmosphere of Leeds Trinity allowed me to flourish and find the confident person I am today. My degree gave a flavour of the breadth of the industries – particularly in the media sector. The connections and opportunities presented to me at Leeds Trinity enabled me to gain experience and 'get a foot in the door' whilst studying.

What did you enjoy most about being a student at Leeds Trinity?

The size, friends and opportunities! I was a real stay-at-home kind of girl and the thought of leaving home was daunting, so the fact that the campus wasn't intimidating really helped me to flourish. I met some amazing friends many of whom I am still in contact with today – I was Chief Bridesmaid for a university friend last week in London!

Any other comments about what it was like to be a student at Leeds Trinity?

Choosing to live and study at Leeds Trinity was one of the best decisions I've ever made!
