Overview Creative Writing aims to nurture your confidence as a writer and to support your development as a critical and skilful analyst of writing. You'll also develop your commercial practice (writing for magazines, reviewing, scriptwriting, editing). Studying English Language allows you to see how language shapes our worlds, brings thoughts to life and forms our identities. Through academic study, you will investigate the many different factors that determine how English is spoken and written, while developing your own creative practice as a writer. In combination, these two subject areas provide you with exciting opportunities to combine very different types of learning. You'll have the opportunity to write for a range of different creative platforms, learn from guest speakers and publish your work. The course will provide a foundation for students who are interested in developing writing as a profession. You'll gain an understanding of commercial markets and the publishing and creative industries, as well as how writers make a living. Key features

  • Opportunities for students to publish their work from the very first week and throughout their undergraduate programme.
  • Experience writing for a range of digital, print, audio, visual and performance platforms.
  • Exciting programme of guest speakers and a student writing magazine: The Fuse.
  • Develops evaluation and reflection of linguistic and stylistic choices.
  • Tailor your course to your individual needs with a joint honours degree.
