Course Summary

This programme will be of particular interest if you are a writer of prose or poetry, but you will not be required to commit to either form and will have the opportunity to work in other forms if you wish. Our programme encourages you to develop and work at the edge of new and evolving practices. You will be invited to engage with fundamental issues in the theory of literature, producing original creative writing in prose, poetry, hybrid and experimental forms as you develop your personal practice through critical reflection. You may also be interested in taking individual modules from the course syllabus on a pay-as-you-go basis. This way you could either build up to gaining the full qualification or study for your own enjoyment and/or professional development.

Students will also achieve Postgraduate Diploma in this course. You will be assessed through, written assignments (creative, critical and reflective) and a final creative project. On this course, we're here to encourage you to challenge and develop yourself creatively as a writer whilst informing you about the contexts and techniques of contemporary literature. Graduates may use it as part of their career development in teaching, publishing or journalism or as a means of access to doctoral study.
