MFA students undertake all of the elements of Creative Writing programme from Manchester Metropolitan University (a taught element blending writing workshops with reading units, an elective, and a dissertation), then take an additional unit about the publishing, literary and arts industries and submit a full-length manuscript: a completed novel or short story collection, poetry collection, book for children or young adults, feature-length script for stage, screen or radio, or book of creative non-fiction.
You will be introduced to professionals from the publishing industries, which may include literary agents, publishers, broadcasters and arts practitioners, and the School has strong links with many major arts, educational and cultural organisations. Our MFA model is unparalleled in coaching students through the development and completion of a full-length book under the sustained guidance of distinguished, practising writers and seeing those students achieve success in publishing.
The Manchester Writing School is one the UK's leading schools of creative writing. It is also home to ground-breaking outreach activities, international writing competitions, series of city-wide literary events, innovative publishing projects, and the Manchester Children's Book Festival.
These activities provide our students with many opportunities to get involved and develop their experience in a number of exciting directions. On completion of this course you may decide to pursue PhD study, or to develop a career in bookselling, agenting, publishing, editing, the media, or teaching creative writing. An unrivalled number of our graduates have become published writers.
