MA Creative Writing


Course Description

MA students are an integral part of the flourishing writing culture within the Department, with regular extra-curricular writing workshops to develop work in progress, regular research seminars and regular visits from distinguished scholars and speakers.

We will prepare you for entry into the professions of writing, across a range of genres and provide opportunities for you to publish work by introducing you to national and international publications, publishing and broadcast media professionals and Literary Agents and Editors.

There is a special emphasis within the Department of English upon interdisciplinarity. Creative Writing as practice is studied alongside literature of the 20th and 21st centuries and in relation to other cultural products in different media – for example, the comparative development of creative writing and film.

Learning and teaching

The taught components of the MA Creative Writing are delivered in the first two terms, leaving the third for your dissertation. Modules are taught in seminar groups, with lots of time for discussion and interaction. In seminars you will be expected to take part in debate and present your work.

Compulsory modules

Creative Writing Dissertation is compulsory

Optional modules

Some examples of the optional modules are as follows; Image, Shape and Music; The Poetry of Events; Structures of Realism and Writing for the Screen

The modules listed here provide examples of what you can expect to learn on this degree course based on recent academic teaching. The precise modules available to you in future years may vary depending on staff availability and research interests, new topics of study, timetabling and student demand

Research areas

All members of staff are active researchers and their interests as a whole encompass all the varieties of Anglophone culture not only in Britain, but in the US and elsewhere. This variety is reflected in the range of topics currently being studied by students, from poetry to drama, novels to films, medieval manuscripts to the internet, and from creative and life writing to the study of panoramas and magic lantern shows. It is also reflected in the number of research and reading groups organised by students and staff and by the number of conferences, talks and guest lectures that take place each year.
