In our Creative Writing degree you will experiment with a range of styles and forms, developing an understanding of the art and craft of writing and exploring its purpose in the world. The degree draws on the diverse city of Brighton & Hove as a source of inspiration that will develop your passion for writing. The course is for students keen to apply critical reading and creative skills to innovative writing practices. Covering a wide range of genres, cultures and identities, you will study techniques and develop expertise in writing that you will apply to work-based scenarios including publishing. Guided by your tutors, you will consider a variety of key texts and be asked to connect your own work in relation to political, social and cultural theories. Innovative teaching will underpin your studies, taking you into creative spaces such as museums, galleries, theatres, archives, the South Downs National Park and Brighton itself. Option modules enable you to tailor your learning and the course offers a specialist pathway in Creative Writing and Wellbeing. There will be frequent opportunities to meet and work with publishers and inspirational writers to further develop your love and understanding of your craft. This is further enhanced by events such as the Scrivener Series of visiting writer workshops, spoken word events and an annual masterclass with a nominee for the Man Booker prize.
