Course Summary

Overview

Our experienced team of published authors will build on your passion for writing. Together we’ll hone your craft and help you find a unique voice.

The course is designed with a flexible approach to learning. Many of our students are adult learners who have been writing independently for a while, and are now ready to take the next steps towards a writing career.

The Creative Writing MA at Canterbury Christ Church offers a stimulating course with a commercial edge, taught by experienced tutors who are successful writers themselves. We believe that all writers need a core toolkit of skills, but we also understand that our students often want to specialise in an area of writing about which they’re passionate. That’s why we offer pathways that allow you to explore subgenres within Fiction, Writing for Children and Creative Non-Fiction, supported by subject specialists.

Your future career

Graduates of this course will most likely be aiming to develop their writing practice with publication in mind. We aim to give students the critical toolkit and industry understanding to present their work to editors, publishers and agents by the end of the course. Other potential careers include teaching and working in communications media, or progressing on to study at MPhil/ PhD level.

Modules

This module introduces students to the demands of postgraduate study, developing the skills, approaches and methods that students will need to complete both the critical and creative aspects of their studies.
