MA Creative Writing


Course Description

The MA in Creative Writing at Nottingham Trent University 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.

Why choose this course?

This MA is suitable for writers interested in exploring and developing their own creative work in a lively community of other writers and teachers.

At the heart of the course are small group workshops and a series of seminars by staff, visiting writers, publishers and professors including internationally acclaimed screenwriter William Ivory and poet Sujata Bhatt among many others.

Other guest speakers include the likes of David Almond, Geoff Dyer, Michael Eaton, Alan Hollinghurst, Kathleen Jamie, Alan Jenkins, Jackie Kay, Jonathan Lethem, David Lodge, Jon McGregor, Michèle Roberts and Miranda Seymour. Establishing important links with the publishing and editing industries, students work closely with staff and visiting speakers to develop their work to an excellent standard.

The unique flexibility of the course enables students to work in a variety of genres including fiction, poetry, children's and young adult fiction, and writing for radio, stage and screen and creative non-fiction. Every year our students produce and publish their own high-quality anthology of original creative writing. This gives students invaluable insights into the editorial and publishing industry, as well as introducing their work to a wider public. Students also have the opportunity to build strong links with Nottingham's thriving literature community and are invited to participate in local events, readings and festivals.
