About

The Creative Writing and Publishing course at Kingston University offers creative writers the chance to learn not only the craft of writing, but also current trends in publishing from world-renowned professionals. It offers the opportunity to develop a creative writing portfolio at the same time as getting to grips with how the publishing process works.

In the Creative Writing and Publishing course at Kingston University, you'll benefit from teaching staff who have practical experience of working in publishing and/or creative writing industries, attend a series of masterclasses across the disciplines and work on live projects. You will be given the opportunity to specialise in the genre of your choice, be it poetry, drama or children's fiction.
