Overview

The MA in Creative Writing at Leeds Trinity University aims to develop your writing skills in either prose or poetry, as well as fostering your creative and critical reading and exploring key issues relating to the publishing business.

Being a writer generally involves a mixed portfolio of skills and attributes, and this MA provides a foundation that extends beyond the writing itself. You will meet agents, publishers, and other professionals – alongside our internationally published staff team – in order to help you to reach your potential as a writer, and also negotiate your first steps towards getting your work out into the world.

Key facts:

To take your writing to the next level, you need to immerse yourself in writing.

This means developing a regular writing practice, reading widely and voraciously, and taking part in writing events – whether that’s as a spectator or performer.

We’ve designed the MA to help you do this, but we also offer plenty of opportunities outside of the MA to be partof a thriving community of  writers.

These include open mic nights, book launches, The annual Leeds Trinity Writers' Festival, and regional literature festival performances from our students, staff and alumni.
