This Creative Writing programme at The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is designed for committed writers who wish to complete significant pieces of work and generally broaden their experience as writers.
The programme offers participants an opportunity to work with a range of writers across a number of genres, both campus based and visiting. It also introduces students to understanding how publishing works.
Modules focus on acquiring an understanding of creativity and genre, research skills for writers, and self determined projects. The creative project/dissertation element of the course allows students to develop work of a publishable standard with an individual tutor.
- Through its links to a host of subjects including Drama, Media, Journalism, Film Studies and Theatre Studies, Creative Writing offers a range of possible writing opportunities. Our location in west Wales enables us to draw on opportunities in a developing area of film and television production here.
- Students are introduced to understanding the world of the self-employed writer by being introduced to publishing (from approaching publishers, the steps of publication, the necessity of documents such as AI sheets), self-presentation in readings, collaborative, cross-disciplinary projects, residencies etc.
- One of the biggest areas of growth is viral advertising narratives and there are also collaborative opportunities in games design and narrative. Links with Literature or History can lead to other possibilities, for example into careers involving narratives associated with archives and museums.
- More widely the focus on both the structure and detail of language develops skills essential to any high-level graduate employment: to formulate and write clear and coherent narratives that present complex information to mixed (or at least varied) audiences. In addition, the programme focus on the respect and listening skills of the workshop is equally valuable. These skills are essential to any of the professions that deal directly with people. These may include social work, probation services, mental health advocates etc.
