Programme structure

Creative Writing at Winchester enhances the skills of every evolving writer at their own pace and in their own way, all the while showing them how their work relates to the wider realms of literary and cultural context.

The programme seeks to move students progressively through a structured series of writing assignments and exercises, working on all genres of writing in the first year, and then allowing them to specialise in Year 2 and 3. It develops the students’ own work by giving them positive critical encouragement and direction throughout. This is enhanced by a workshop environment which helps students form a critical understanding of their own writing and the writing of others. Guidance is given on audience (for example editor, agent or publisher) where appropriate.

In Year 2, the focus becomes more specific with modules that look at elements of different genres such as writing for children, media writing, poetry, song and play, film and TV script.

In Year 3, the modules look increasingly at the relationships between writing and the world beyond the University, looking at publishing, producing, community audiences, writing and teaching.
