Want to get published? Learn the all-important techniques by studying some of the world’s most famous writers. Share your writing with published authors and other students in a supportive environment, while developing critical and literary skills that will help you catch the eye of publishers, agents and other employers. Develop your writing with help from our award winning poets, short story writers and novelists. On our writing modules, you’ll develop your creative and professional writing skills through independent work as well as in our interactive workshops and seminars. We offer modules in social media and events organisation, and the opportunity to explore the world of publishing. Our teaching staff will give you invaluable feedback – as will your fellow students. Combining this with an exploration of areas such as grammar, style and critical writing, you’ll discover new ways to express your literary talent. By studying Writing and English Literature, you’ll explore how our most treasured authors approached their craft, and apply this knowledge to your own writing. Our English literature modules allow you to balance your study of traditional writers like Shakespeare, Milton, Wordsworth, Dickens and Woolf with an exploration of genres such as modern science fiction, children's literature and contemporary women's writing. We have specialists in nineteenth century radical and religious literature, in modernism, the Gothic and children’s literature. Throughout the course, you’ll be supported by published writers, critics, journalists and professionals from related fields, who can show you the skills and techniques that publishers look for in new writers.
