Program Description

From poetry and playwriting to short stories and novels, you’ll focus on your existing creative passions and experiment with a wide range of styles, modes, and genres. You’ll be mentored by professional authors who can help you find your creative voice. You can see your work performed by actors in a staged reading, and get published in our student-led magazine – Show Don’t Tell – as well as our annual paperback anthology, the New Writing Series.

We’re a close-knit creative writing community and our students benefit from a high level of support from each other and staff. You’ll learn from award-winning lecturers who specialise in a variety of genres, including transgressive writing, confessional poetry, sci-fi, horror, and speculative fiction. These include Professor Nigel McLoughlin – twice shortlisted for the Hennessey Award, and whose work has appeared in The Guardian, the Independent on Sunday and The Irish Times.
