The Creative Writing programme at Anglia Ruskin University will give you the rare opportunity to improve your writing by practising and sharing it with a close group of fellow writers, including specialist lecturers who are published authors.
You will study the most acclaimed writers of the past 200 years and discover the techniques they used to make their writing stand out. Our in-class and extra-curricular exercises will allow you to practise your technique with different forms of writing and in areas such as characterisation, structure, and pacing.
Using what you have learned, you will create samples of your writing to share with your lecturers and fellow students, allowing you to receive a wide range of responses to your work as well as learning to critically evaluate the work of others.
Our MA Creative Writing will help you prepare for a career as a creative writer or in related areas such as publishing and the media, but will also give you critical and analytical skills valued by many employers.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
