With more than ten years of experience in supporting creative writers, The MFA at HKU offers uniquely designed workshops and craft classes led by top local and visiting writers. A customized balance of coursework and individual supervision, for each student in the MFA, provides professional feedback and advanced practices toward completing an original Creative Thesis, ready for circulation and potential publication.
The master degree ion Creative Writing in English at The University of Hong Kong offers the gold standard in the field, including a special focus on creative contexts of the multilingual writer. At HKU, we welcome creative writers from Hong Kong and overseas. The programme offers one year of intensive and dedicated study among fellow writers at the HKU Black Box Studio, a home to creative writers and the arts in Hong Kong. Students join together and forge a life-long community of writers.
Writers may apply with samples from a growing creative project, or a treasured work-in-progress, including short stories, a novel, memoir, a play, a screenplay, or poetry.
