MA Creative Writing University of Chichester


Course info


The MA in Creative Writing is focussed on writing as a craft. It is designed to give students a structure within which they can develop their writing, experimenting with the wide range of possibilities available to the contemporary writer. It is possible to write prose fiction (the novel or short story), poetry, creative non-fiction (biography, autobiography, memoir, travel), film scripts or drama for the stage or radio. You may want to work on one project such as a novel, throughout the course. Or you may wish to explore different genres. The course allows for both options.

Our MA Creative writing students 'read as writers', explore their reading in group discussions and engage in writing exercises designed to enlarge and stimulate their practice. However, the MA is not a literary critical MA: the approach to reading is one of looking at the craft of writing.

In the intensive MA workshops, students share work, learn to write to deadlines, learn how to redraft, polish, edit imaginatively and find the creative thread which, when followed, reveals how their own writing will achieve its optimum level. We believe in creating a community of writers who can support and learn from one another.

All written assignments are accompanied by the writing of a commentary on the process; the commentary speeds and makes explicit a writer's discoveries, and so aids future practice.

Assessment is by a portfolio of creative work with a short accompanying commentary, comprising 6000 words for each module.
