Where will your words take you? English graduates have a cultural impact on the world we live in through their writing, from books and films to TV and news. English graduates produced A Handmaid’s Tale and Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People about Race, both books of profound cultural impact. English produces key cultural figures, e.g. broadcasters, filmmakers and novelists, so cinema trips we go on, news and current affairs we watch, and satirical TV and sitcoms we enjoy, owe much to English and Creative Writing. This programme offers an opportunity to develop your creative writing skills, and imaginative flexibility, and study literary texts in English from different historical periods and a variety of genres. You can develop your key skills in English and Creative Writing, with options throughout the degree to study English Language and Linguistics. Working with published writers and subject specialists, you'll learn how to communicate and create for both professional purposes and pleasure. Our creative writing workshops will teach you 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. You will 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 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. Professional placements You'll complete professional work placements, experiencing the types of careers that your degree could lead to. You can expect to complete your placements in a variety of settings, including schools, museums, local councils, charities, and media outlets. Career opportunities Our students have gone on work in a wide range of organisations – from film production companies and recording studios, to local newspapers and MPs' offices and to teaching, after further study. Some graduates go on to complete the MA in Creative Writing at Leeds Trinity.
