This specialist course combines the practice of writing for different audiences and in different contexts and genres with the development of a reflective and critical understanding of writing. It is one of the few courses in the country to combine creative and professional writing, giving it a real emphasis on employability.
Student writing is the heartbeat of this course. You will create, analyse and interpret different forms and styles of writing, focusing on three broad themes: craft of writing; reading as a writer; and working as a writer.
In all your creative and professional writing modules, you can expect to spend time exploring theory and technique, reading the work of established writers, experimenting through writing exercises and producing your own original pieces. You’ll be taught by published writers whose books cover a wide range of creative, professional and critical disciplines, we also invite special visiting lecturers from the world of publishing as well as internationally renowned authors.
