Our programme will refine your knowledge and practice of writing. We aim to help you improve your writing skills by offering detailed and specialised encounters with writing theory and practice. These encounters will expand your awareness of the context and the skills needed for contemporary writing. Our focus on contextual and theoretical engagement will contribute to your development as a professional writer.
Why study an MA in Creative and Professional Writing here?
One of the unique features of this degree is its strong link with other postgraduate programmes such as the National Centre for Research in Children’s Literature, and with our MA in Translation. Along with the potential for studying writing across disciplinary boundaries, we offer specialised courses in fiction, poetry, writing for children, nonfiction and screenwriting. This wide scope provides a rich and diverse learning experience which encourages you to develop your own personal approach to writing.
We also offer a supportive environment, where you may generate and develop peer-editing groups, workshops, and readings.
Our location in London also makes it an ideal base from which to investigate (and potentially participate in) the capital’s varied literary communities.
