The MA in Creative Writing offers aspiring fiction writers and poets a one year apprenticeship (or two years part-time) during which time they will study literary technique through reading and discussing the work of other contemporary writers in seminars, and will have the opportunity to develop their own work via regular workshops and individual tutorials.
Fiction writers may choose to focus on writing a novel or on writing short stories.
All students will have the opportunity to attend one of the six week masterclasses taught by Professor Martin Amis.
More information about this programme can be found on the Centre for New Writing website.
Please note that both the full and part-time options are taught between 9am to 5pm. We do not offer evening classes.
In semester one, students may choose to take two workshops - one in fiction writing and one in poetry -- or they may take one workshop and one seminar - typical seminars will be 'The Art of Short Fiction' and 'Poetics'.
In semester two students wishing to focus on poetry writing will take a poetry workshop and a seminar on Contemporary Poetry; students wishing to focus on fiction writing will take a fiction writing workshop and a seminar in Contemporary Fiction.
