Overview

A course in creative writing may be the first step towards a writing career, or a chance for more experienced writers to develop their work from a new perspective. 

Our MA in Creative Writing is taught by staff who are both published writers and practising academics thoroughly experienced in the challenges of university research. 

Careers and Employability

An MA in Creative Writing may lead to a career as a novelist, poet or playwright. Planning and developing a substantial writing project is a good preparation for future funded or commissioned writing, as well as for an academic career in practice-based research. 

This Creative Writing course at Bangor University  also offers a range of skills that can be applied in other contexts, for example editing, publishing, journalism and arts administration. 

The ability to use language fluently and persuasively is essential for success in almost any field, and the flexibility of working across genres in this course offers an excellent grounding in creative language use.
