BA (Hons) coursesCreative Writing

Course Overview

Stories are at the heart of how we communicate and understand the world. Through this course, you’ll gain the skills to join the next generation of creative storytellers.

Creative writing is becoming more and more important. These days, it’s just as integral to arts and entertainment as it is to business and commerce.

A career in creative writing could see you working in publishing, a literary agency or in education. And that’s just the start. Whether you want to create poems, film scripts or children’s fiction, we’ll help you turn writing into a career.

You’ll learn to draw inspiration from existing literature, before developing your own voice and honing your craft. Through a range of exciting projects, you’ll explore the whole writing process — from research to editing.

With visits from published writers and industry professionals, you’ll explore career opportunities and build contacts, too.

Writers rarely work alone, so you’ll have the chance to collaborate with other courses. You might write scripts with Animation and Film Production, or explore narratives with Illustration.

When you graduate, you’ll have a strong portfolio, and a professional network to kickstart your career.
