Course info

Summary

Why choose this course?

Kingston University is ranked No 1 in London for journalism, publishing and public relations (Guardian University Guide league tables 2020). With very few budding writers making a living from writing alone, this course 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. You'll benefit from teaching staff who have practical experience of working in publishing and/or creative writing industries, attend a series of master classes across the disciplines and work on live projects for Kingston University Press. We have exceptional links with major publishers, such as Hachette Penguin Random House, Bloomsbury and Macmillan; and you will have the opportunity to enter your work into competitions sponsored by The Bookseller magazine and Faber and Faber. There are also opportunities to work on live projects for Kingston University Press.

What you will study

The creative writing element of this course is workshop-led and, in the second semester, you will be given the opportunity to specialise in the genre of your choice, be it poetry, drama or children's fiction. The publishing element focuses on marketing-led commercial and trade publishing, and the modules you study will help you to understand the structure of the industry and the core skills required to enter.

Teaching and assessment

You'll be taught and assessed through essays, reports, presentations, briefs, research projects, and portfolios.
