Creative Writing

Creative Writing is a practice-based discipline that encourages you to develop your own individual writing style. It helps you cultivate a creative and critical approach to a wide variety of writing, including fiction, non-fiction, poetry and drama (stage and screen). You’ll be taught in small workshop groups, where you get lots of individual feedback from fellow students and lecturers.

You can study Creative Writing as part of a combined undergraduate degree.

You can also continue your studies in this fascinating subject area at postgraduate level. The MA in Creative Writing gives you the chance to develop your writing and it’s practical applications in the workplace. It will stimulate your imagination through intensive workshops and one-to-one supervision in a specialism of your choice.

For me the advice and feedback I received on both my history essays and creative writing finals were incredibly useful to my academic and creative development. I learnt to take criticism, harness it to improve and also write more because of it.
