The University College Cork MA in Creative Writing encourages students to be curious about literature, to pursue creative excellence and to develop their writing in a university atmosphere.
All of the courses are embedded in Cork’s dynamic creative milieu, rooted in expert practice and taught by highly accomplished professionals. A rich variety of modules are available, including Fiction, Poetry and Life Writing. Creative non-fiction options include innovative courses in Food Writing and Writing for Radio.
The School of English in UCC treats writing as a living, evolving practice: students taking the course will read and write in a context in which literature is being performed, transformed and adapted.
This MA gives you the opportunity to write in an empathetic and academically rigorous context, amidst a dynamic cultural milieu. Core modules address key creative techniques and help sustain and refresh your writing. Professional development is mentored and supported via modules in The Business of Writing and in the Creative Industries.
