Overview

By studying this Joint Honours degree in Creative Writing and Illustration you gain experience in two highly complementary disciplines, allowing you to produce work that showcases your development in both areas. Our interdisciplinary approach gives flexibility and a wider view of the world that is attractive to employers. Studying these courses in combination could be right for you if your creative interests span working in both visual and written forms, and if your curiosity is fired by the possibilities afforded by visual and other communication contexts.

Creative Writing aims to nurture your confidence as a writer and to support your development as a critical and skilful analyst of writing, whilst developing your commercial practice (writing for magazines, reviewing, scriptwriting, editing) and understanding of the publishing industry. When studying Illustration at Worcester, you aim to cover the complete range of genres and forms, including children’s books, editorial and magazine illustration, the graphic novel, reportage, authorial illustration and advertising.

Career opportunities

Creative Writing and Illustration graduates go on to work in sectors such as publishing, the media, marketing and communications. Graduates will find career opportunities not only in illustration but also television motion graphics, graphic design, story writing, studio management and advertising.

The Creative Writing section of this course will provide a foundation for students who are interested in developing writing as a profession, for example in the creative industries and/or commercial markets and an understanding of how writers make a living.

The course also provides an excellent basis for further study or for self-employment as a freelance writer. Graduates from this course will be very successful candidates for careers in teaching because of the emphasis on writing in the new English curricula.

Illustrators are in increasing demand as the media industries expand. Options for the professional illustrator include newspapers and magazines, books, advertising, exhibiting independent work, television and the internet. All these fields are potential showcases for graduates’ work.
