About

The Creative Writing and Publishing programme at Anglia Ruskin University will prepare you for work in these increasingly entwined growth industries, whether you want to join the traditional publishing industry, establish your own small press or set up a single-author imprint for your own novel.

Overview

Modern publishing takes place in many different sectors, from the traditional literary press to the digital frontiers of app development and game design. Authors are no longer insulated from business concerns - even ‘Big 5’ publishers expect authors to build their own platforms and audiences, manage their own social media, interpret sales and negotiate an increasingly complex range of international and digital rights.

The Creative Writing and Publishing programme at Anglia Ruskin University will allow you to develop your own fiction writing in a supportive environment while giving you a systematic and detailed understanding of the changing nature of publishing organisations and their processes in a global digital environment.

In our Creative Writing workshops, you will get feedback on your writing from other students as well as from our experienced teaching team, giving you a unique perspective on how your work is read by different audiences.

Careers

Our MA Creative Writing and Publishing will prepare you for employment in whichever aspect of the writing and publishing industries most interests you. Throughout the course, you will develop many transferable academic and professional skills, including self-reflection, critical analysis, and working to briefs and deadlines, as well as the research skills necessary for producing creative works, professional publishing documents and critical writing.
