Where will your words take you? Whether you want to write for publication or develop a range of writing skills for your career, English and Creative Writing will give you the expertise and confidence to succeed. You'll learn how to communicate and create for both professional purposes and pleasure, working with award-winning published writers and subject specialists. You'll take part in creative writing workshops, learning how to give and receive constructive criticism about writing. And you'll be introduced to speech-writing and the power of words, as well as learning how to write your own life story and the stories of others. At the same time, you'll develop your knowledge of writing in English as you read, discuss and respond creatively to a range of great literary texts. We'll teach you how to read and analyse poetry and short stories, as well as how to compare past and modern texts in the same genres. You'll complete two professional work placements, experiencing the types of careers that your degree could lead to. You'll have the opportunity to work with an experienced writer on a final-year writing project and, beyond the curriculum, you'll be part of Leeds Trinity's acclaimed writing culture, taking part in events like our annual Writers' Festival and monthly open mic nights. By the time you graduate, you'll be prepared for the world of work – wherever your words may take you. Placement opportunities We are one of only a few UK universities to build professional work placements into every degree. You'll complete two professional work placements, which will give you the chance to graduate with up to three months' professional work experience without having to take a sandwich year out. Our students have completed their placements at a wide range of organisations – from film production companies and recording studios, to local newspapers and MPs' offices. If you're interested in teaching, you could also experience working in a primary or secondary school. Graduate opportunities You'll be well-prepared for a career in professional writing, playwriting, teaching, journalism, publishing, copywriting, marketing, PR, and communications.
