Overview

The Creative Writing research programme at Swansea University offers a choice from a spectrum of skills and a research dialogue across genres, including poetry, fiction, drama and screenwriting.

We are a closely bonded community of writers, each research student being supervised by a specialist writer-teacher. 

One-to-one meetings take place every 4 weeks, or at the student’s request. The corpus of research students also meets in monthly staff-student Creative Writing Methodology Workshops.

Opportunities of the course

The Creative Writing research programme at Swansea University offers its graduate writers an apprenticeship, with the precious time to dedicate oneself to learning a craft which, for all its mysteriousness, works according to techniques and rules which may only be creatively broken once they have been thoroughly understood. 

Swansea is especially proud of the intellectual rigour of its programme and research culture. 

Our team includes teacher-writers of award-winning stature and long experience, and we go to considerable lengths to match student with supervisor, to create an enriching and enduring writerly bond.
