Program Description

Learn about the professional writing opportunities you can have in the publishing, communication and media industries and how to turn your skills into a career with a Creative Writing master’s.

The MA in Professional Creative Writing studied either full-time or part-time enables you to develop your writing craft and hone your writing skills towards the real-world needs of the publishing, communication and media industries. The course covers traditional, contemporary and emerging forms of writing - from novel writing to the graphic novel and creative nonfiction; from playwriting to writing for television, screen and multimedia; from poetry to psychogeography and eco-writing; from crime writing to fantasy and horror.
