Content

Our celebrated creative writing programme is perfect for talented and aspiring writers looking to gain adventurous and needed creative and critical skills. This is an exciting and supportive online course that offers you the opportunity to develop your writing practice wherever you are in the world.

Entry Requirements

Normally a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent), though this is not a pre-requisite.

You submit a portfolio of original work (poetry, fiction, life-writing or other prose, drama, and in some instances a portfolio of work in or of translation). A maximum of 20 pages (one side only, double spaced throughout) per submission will be considered, and the portfolio can contain prose, verse, script, or a combination of these.

We also require two letters of reference. Your referees should include an academic and a creative referee where possible. Where this is not possible, you can provide referees from other areas who can vouch that you are who you say you are and that your work and achievements are your own. It is particularly helpful if these referees are familiar with your writing and can provide references on that basis.
