Overview

The  Creative Writing course at De Montfort University  is a practice led programme with taught modules and extended projects, giving students the chance to develop their writing in chosen areas, or experiment with new forms and genres. Students will follow craft and writing industry focused modules, and have the chance to explore other specialisms via a module audit, or a carry out a negotiated project driven by their own interests. 

There are modules in research skills for writers, which help students shape and grow their projects and give them a theoretical basis to discuss and conceptualise their own work. Towards the end of the course, students have the chance to carry out an extended piece of creative work independently, with tutor guidance and feedback. 

The course is ideal for students wishing to enrich or expand their current creative practice, but also a very thorough preparation for those who wish to go on to a PhD in Creative Writing. For part time students, we offer different attendance patterns in the afternoon or evening throughout the course, to make it easier to fit your learning around work and other commitments.
