Leeds Trinity University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Do you want to turn your passion for writing into your career? Award-winning writers from the fields of journalism, fiction, poetry and film will work with you to develop your writing skills in a range of online and offline media. You'll develop journalism skills, understanding the different styles of writing required for feature writing, magazines and arts journalism. You'll learn how to write for TV and film, understanding the process that takes your writing from script to screen. And you'll take part in creative writing workshops, gaining confidence in writing poetry and fiction and discovering how to give and receive constructive criticism. We'll show you the professional and commercial use of writing across all of these areas, as well as encouraging cross-media exploration that will enable you to produce creative and innovative writing. You'll also explore the potential of digital media as a platform for your creativity, focusing on online storytelling and game-based narratives. Each year, you'll work with employers on live writing projects, developing a diverse portfolio of professional work throughout your degree. By the time you graduate, you'll have extensive experience of writing individually and collectively in a range of styles, an established writing portfolio, and an understanding of the market potential of your writing. 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. You'll also make contact with employers throughout your degree, ensuring that the work you produce is in line with current professional practice. Graduate opportunities You'll be well-prepared for a career in film production, creative writing, arts administration, media and PR. Leeds has fantastic job opportunities for graduates with professional writing abilities and experience, offering plenty of scope for engaged and ambitious writers.
You will study the following modules on the Creative and Professional Writing degree course: Professional Writing, Critical Thinking Skills, Magazine Journalism, Script to Screen, Digital Narratives, Professional Portfolio, and Advanced Short Film Production.
