Learn the craft of creative writing from practicing and published writers
Our MA Creative Writing course focuses on writing as a craft. It provides you a strong platform to develop your writing, as you experiment with the wide range of possibilities available to the contemporary writer.
You will have the opportunity to develop your skills in writing prose fiction (the novel or short story), poetry, creative non-fiction (biography, autobiography, memoir, travel), film scripts or drama for the stage or radio.
You may want to work on one project, such as a novel, throughout the course, or you may wish to explore different genres; the course allows for both options.
This list is indicative and subject to change.
The Writing Studio
This module serves as induction to the MA and to the distinctive methods of the ‘Chichester workshop’ and enables you to experiment in any genre prose, poetry or drama, while exploring key features of those genres.
Teaching and Assessment
Feel the support of one of the most experienced teaching teams in the UK
You will learn through a combination of seminar discussion, writing exercises and workshops.
In the intensive MA workshops, 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.
In addition to taught sessions by MA staff and talks by visiting writers, students will also benefit from two master classes a year by our visiting Professors, novelist Kate Mosse and novelist and short story writer Alison MacLeod.
Modules are assessed at every stage of the course, allowing you to clearly see your academic progress at all stages of the course.
To gain a Postgraduate Diploma in Creative Writing, students need to complete four modules. Each module is assessed by an assignment of approximately 6,000 words or equivalent.
To gain an MA in Creative Writing, students need to complete all four modules and a dissertation of 20,000 words (or poetry/drama equivalents).
Gain unique insight into the creative writing industry
We also offer advice on publishing and the market place through our annual Agents and Editors’ Panel.
We welcome experts from the publishing industry come to Chichester to talk about getting published and to make contacts with our students.
A number of our students have met their agents and/or editors at one of these panels.
The University boasts a blossoming writing culture and community, with regular book launches and conferences.
In addition, we welcome guest authors to discuss their work, their process, and their careers, providing an in-depth insight into the publishing world.
