Learn the craft of writing and explore its purpose, experimenting with various styles. Our Creative Writing degree takes an inclusive and encouraging approach and will help you develop your creativity, drawing on our diverse city as inspiration. We encourage you to apply critical reading and creative skills to innovative writing practices. Covering a variety of genres, you will study techniques and develop expertise that you will apply to work-based scenarios including publishing. Guided by supportive tutors, you will consider key texts and connect your work to political, social and cultural theories. Our teaching will take you into museums, galleries, theatres, archives, the countryside and city. There are opportunities to work with publishers and acclaimed writers.
