The structure of the Creative Writing course is designed to offer clear progression through each level.

Teaching will largely be delivered through lectures, seminars and workshops, supplemented by individual and group tutorials, presentations, and critiques.

crafting with professional writers

This course gives you the opportunity to follow your independent interests and develop projects whilst being guided and mentored by professional writers and/or editors.

This will allow you to explore, experiment, and hone your craft, nurtured by experts in your chosen field of study.

the writing workshop

At the core of the course experience will be writing workshops that provide safe environments for you to read your work in front of your lecturers and peers, to gain invaluable constructive feedback and help you to become a critically reflective writer

This is an essential part of the writing process and you will be encouraged to translate the feedback into your practice through editing and redrafting, whilst also offering generous and critical feedback to others.
