All students attend this two and-a-half-hour compulsory workshop – part-time students attend in their first year.
In the first term you will be encouraged to experiment with a variety of genres in creative and life writing, and then in the second term to develop your individual interests in poetry, fiction, autobiography and biography, or perhaps a fusion of those genres.
A collection of poems that you can't wait to get down on paper?
This degree will help you develop your creative writing practice.
Some workshops will be taken by visiting writers, introducing you to a range of practices, concerns and techniques.
The workshop also enables you to debate issues raised in the Contemporary Contexts module in relation to your own practice.
You will also be assessed on a portfolio (maximum of 20,000 words) containing a piece or pieces of creative or life-writing together with a critical account of how you have structured and developed your work.
In all cases, the number of words applies to prose.
You might also be considered for some programmes if you aren’t a graduate or your degree is in an unrelated field, but have relevant experience and can show that you have the ability to work at postgraduate level.
We accept a wide range of international qualifications.
