Language and stories are at the heart of how we, as a species, communicate and
interact – the ways by which we try and understand and experience the world – and
the BA (Hons) Creative Writing course is designed to inspire a new generation of
story-tellers. An integral part of social and cultural capital, stories are also the lifeblood
of many media and entertainment industries and, increasingly, business and
enterprise. Whether you are interested in telling your stories through the medium of
poetry, script-writing, prose or creative non-fiction, you will leave this course having
had practical experience of a variety of writing skills for different effects. The
course team believes that exposing students to a wide range of writing-related
industries, will equip you with the creative and critical tools for continuing your
writing beyond the course into a professional context, whether in industry or further
study and research.
The course will celebrate its exciting location within a specialist arts institution that
promotes a strong maker/creator culture. It will actively engage with contemporary
conversations surrounding Creative Writing as an academic and creative arts
discipline through foregrounding research-led learning and teaching methodologies;
dynamic curricula that embrace a diversity of thought, practices and backgrounds;
and a collaborative, student-centered approach. Through introducing you to the main
forms of writing and providing opportunities to pursue individual projects of personal
interest, this course aims to provide a well-rounded and inspiring start to your career.
