Course description

This is a small, specialised creative writing pathway within an English Literature degree. Students will take 25% of their credits in creative writing (both fiction and poetry).

The course covers the full range of English literature from Old English to the present day. The creative writing component of the course focuses on fiction and poetry writing.  The course will introduce you to techniques of fiction and poetry writing and develop your understanding of i) the craft of writing ii)  the nature and necessity of revision and iii) the importance of being able to give and receive constructive feedback.

The creative writing component of the degree will be taught in small group workshops. Students will write their own poems and stories regularly, read relevant work from established writers, and respond to examples of contemporary poetry and fiction. There will be in-class writing exercises and an introduction to workshopping.

Fees

Fees for entry in 2017 have not yet been set. For entry in 2016 the tuition fees were £9,000 per annum for home/EU students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2017 entry.
