Designed with serious, ambitious writers in mind, our Creative Writing MA uses seminars, tutorials, workshops, and precise editing to enable you to take control of your own work and write exciting, contemporary material.
Students are encouraged to consider choosing from the broad range of options offered at the Paris Centre alongside their Creative Writing modules. This programme offers students a unique opportunity to find inspiration both in and out of the classroom and to develop a creative voice in the stimulating surroundings of Montparnasse.
You take two modules in each of the first two terms and a Creative Writing Dissertation in the third.
You are required to take Fiction 1 in the first term and Fiction 2 and Paris: The Residency in the second. In the first term you then choose from the range of modules on offer in Paris. While in Paris, you are encouraged to attend readings and talks, and to organise your own writing workshops.
You take a total of four modules, for which you will produce approximately 8,000 words each (or an equivalent number of poems or translations). In addition, you write a creative dissertation of about 12,000 words.
