Creative Writing (Joint Honours) BA/BSc (Hons)

This enjoyable and demanding course allows students to develop a distinctive voice as a writer. A range of writing skills is developed through a carefully planned and precisely structured approach. Students explore the poem, short story, autobiography, biography, and writing for performance. A dedicated team of published writers support individual writing skills through regular, friendly, workshops and seminars throughout. 

All graduates of the programme leave as published authors already by contributing to the UN annual Creative Writing Yearbook, Red Kite, an ISBN publication, which sells across the globe.

The focus on writing skills, imaginative thinking analysis and communication enables graduates to enter a wide range of employment where skills in those areas are essential. These include journalism, publishing, public administration, arts administration, retailing, marketing, advertising, media and communications, librarianship, teaching and many more.
