MA Creative Writing
Why choose this course?
If you want to make a career in writing, this course is for you. You already have talent and ideas: we will add the knowledge you need to approach your chosen market with confidence, originality and skill.
This course takes a fresh approach to the training and support of aspiring writers. In class you'll practice narrative technique, develop vocational skills and analyse the cultural context of your work. As your writing takes shape you'll have the opportunity to specialise in commercial forms, including crime fiction, science fiction and fantasy, or life writing, creative non-fiction and journalism.
Uniquely, the course also offers a dynamic range of cross-disciplinary options. In the second trimester, you can choose to extend your skills by taking a module in screenwriting at Screen Academy Scotland, writing for interactive entertainment, or writing for graphic novels.
Your own creative work will receive ongoing attention, with regular one-to-one mentoring sessions. The course will also host an exciting programme of lectures and master classes from award-winning visiting writers and high profile industry experts.
