Contemporary Literature - MA

Course Description

At York St John we offer a range of opportunities to explore literature at a postgraduate level. Our MA courses emphasise the importance of creative practitioners and are enhanced by regular visits. Visiting writers have included York-born award-winning novelist Kate Atkinson; poet and broadcaster Ian McMillan; novelist and poet Michèle Roberts; novelist Joe Dunthorne; graphic novelist and illustrator Graham Rawle; and award-winning poets Simon Armitage and Daljit Nagra. York St John maintains links with the regional literary community through events such as York Literature Festival. Modules are supplemented by visiting industry professionals, agents and publishers.

All our programmes are run at our beautiful city centre campus in York. You can study full or part-time. Our postgraduate programmes offer distinctive and flexible patterns of study which will meet the needs of a wide range of students wishing to extend or develop their interests in literature and writing.
