We’ll help you develop your own philosophy of writing as you improve your craft. You’ll study contemporary forms. You’ll learn to read as a working writer. You’ll try new techniques and explore the relationship between writing and society.

Your main focus will be working towards a final manuscript. You’ll develop a deep understanding of your creativity and your craft as you reflect on your progress.

Uncover the hidden workings of the literary industry. Discover how to submit a piece to publication and prepare for a writer’s life on our MA Creative Writing.

Modules

This module enables you to study reading as a writer as a way of investigating literariness through reading from a writerly perspective and by reading poetics by practising writers as a speculative discourse. You will focus upon questions of literary technique. It also involves the keeping of a log to enable an ongoing reflective process of professional development.
