MFA Creative Writing


Course Description

Study:

When the first Creative Writing MA was introduced in 1970 at UEA, it was the first of its kind in the UK, and is still distinguished by the unrivalled success of its alumni. This Master’s of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing builds on UEA’s extensive connections with publishers and agents, ultimately benefitting its students who will graduate equipped to launch their career as published writers, with extensive training and experience to support their literary career, or to teach it to others.

Structure:

The first year of the MFA will offer all the benefits of a workshop-based approach to teaching writing. The second year will be structured on the PhD model, offering one-to-one supervision of works-in-progress, culminating in the submission of a full-length publishable piece for assessment.

Teaching:

Including workshops, tutorials and the double-marking of assignments, your work will be read and commented upon by faculty members around 35 times over the course of the MFA. There will be opportunities to share your work with visiting writers, such as UNESCO professors, including novelists Ali Smith, James Lasdun and Margaret Atwood.

Employability:

You will become confident with all aspects of professional writing, and will enjoy greatly enhanced prospects of publication on graduation in the areas of teaching, publishing, literary agent, journalism, public relations, communications, the media, arts development and administration. The MFA is also an entry-level qualification for a career in academia in the USA, giving graduates the opportunity immediately to pursue a teaching role at undergraduate level.
