Department of English and Creative Writing
Distance learning is a speciality of our provision at Lancaster. Our distance learning MA in Creative Writing is tutored by professional writers and experts in this method of tuition. You will be assigned a personal tutor who is a practitioner in your chosen field of writing. The course is a two-year, part-time option and includes a residential Summer School, which usually takes place at Lancaster at the end of June. This computer-mediated course will provide tutorial support by e-mail and regular sharing and discussion of work-in- progress in computer conferences via the web. Each piece of work you send your tutor is accompanied by a reflective commentary and your tutor replies with a detailed report. By the end of the course this process accumulates as an invaluable resource of creative, critical and reflective writing. You will submit two substantial pieces of creative work to your tutor each term and there will also be an online conference each term that falls between the tutorials.
