Course Summary

The programme is designed around the core activity of producing a major prose fiction project, which can be a novel fragment with synopsis, a novella or a collection of short stories, of publishable quality and produced in a marketable form. This MA has attracted considerable interest among publishers and literary agents, many of whom participate actively in the programme. It combines a focus on the skills of writing full-length fiction with a clear-eyed exploration of the publishing process and related creative fields. The Internship Programme offers a unique opportunity in a Creative Writing Master's programme for you not only to understand the role that the creative industries play in shaping a writing career but actually to participate in these fields.
