MA Creative Writing

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Creative Writing MA course at Southampton is a lively and dynamic programme, allowing students to focus in four exciting areas of contemporary writing: international fiction, scriptwriting, poetry, and writing for children and young people. Teaching is conducted in small groups with one or more writing tutors guiding students through the implications and potentials of their own writing paths. You may substitute one of your Creative Writing option modules with a module from another MA Humanities programme, normally chosen from the MA English or MA Film programmes. English at Southampton is a forward-looking discipline with a long record of encouraging contemporary writing. Visiting writers often speak at our postgraduate seminars, and several of our teaching staff are researchers in the contemporary field. The MA programme has close links to the Centre for Contemporary Writing, which runs conferences, readings, and other literary events.
