Creative Writing

University of St Andrews

Content

The MLitt in Creative Writing develops original work while providing critical and creative study in either poetry or prose. The MLitt offers technically oriented tuition by contemporary authors with an emphasis on best practice in contemporary writing.

This programme encourages critical thinking and writing – and the recognition of innate strengths and potential – in either poetry or prose and emphasizes the necessity of broad and well-informed reading in the development of an original ‘voice’. It helps to build an awareness of creative industry norms and expectations as well as the potential in different areas, including genre and cross-genre work.

You can exit after Semester 2 with PgDip Creative Writing.
