The Course

Build your degree around genres, styles and audiences that interest you

Year One

In your first year, you will be introduced to the writing process through modules that help you develop a notebook, tap into your own experience to inform your creative thinking, and use the wider world as inspiration for your writing.

You will also begin to learn the craft of poetry, prose and life writing, as well as take English modules designed to widen your knowledge of critical analysis.

Year Two

In your second year, you will explore poetry, short fiction, life writing, flash fiction, and writing for children.

You will also engage in further exploration of critical theory to complement your work. There will also be the opportunity to explore writing for the screen, as well as modules in children’s fiction.

Year Three

The creative modules in your final year allow you to explore your discipline and genre of choice. You will also explore more specific genres such as YA fiction, flash fiction, digital writing, fantasy, and science fiction. You will explore the novel, short stories and poetry.

You will have the opportunity to take modules that help you develop your skills in your area of choice even further, culminating in the final creative writing dissertation project.

This can take the form of a fiction project, a poetry project, a play or screenwriting project, a creative non-fiction project or, subject to a supervisor’s agreement, an imaginative writing project that is hybrid in form and/or content.

This list is indicative and subject to change.

Teaching and Assessment

Teaching

Much of our teaching takes place in small groups. Within these classes, you will typically discuss good writing practice and workshop your own writing.

Our commitment to smaller class sizes allows you to feel more confident to discuss your ideas in a supportive environment. It also allows your tutors get to know you and how best to aid your development.

Assessment

Our Creative Writing courses are predominately assessed through portfolios of work, although the critical modules will be assessed through essays, exams and presentations. The Writing Placement module will be assessed through a reflective report.

Modules are assessed at every stage of the course, allowing you to clearly see your academic progress at all stages of the course.
