Your academic team are all experienced writers who will encourage you to find where your aptitudes and enthusiasms lie, helping you to develop your own writing practice and style.
This course benefits from a close relationship with other creative courses such as media, art and design, journalism, and computer games development so you work in an atmosphere of collaborative, artistic energy. You also have many opportunities to share your work, including in our annual published anthology of student writing and open-mic nights.
Graduates from the course have gone on to successful careers in a range of fields, from published authors of fantasy writing and innovative poetry to editorial roles, from professional YouTubers to Creative Writing lecturers.

The course team are all practising writer-academics with active research and creative interests. You will be encouraged to find outlets for your work, meet with successful graduates of the course, and attend readings and lectures by writers across a range of genres.
The Professional Practice unit is designed to give you a practical understanding of some aspects of career development across a range of areas of writing and writing-related careers. It allows you to tie this development in to the genre or field of writing you feel is most immediately relevant to your prospects of employability or publication.
You will learn skills in the presentation and adaptation of your writing for publication, performance, online distribution; you can perform, publish and exhibit your work during the course, either individually, or as part of a group.
The course has links with a range of professionals in writing and publishing, from successful alumni who will share their experiences with you, to publishers who will give advice on getting published and on careers in publishing, including applying for internships.
