Creative Writing and Drama Studies

Creative Writing at DMU is a joint honours course that explores the art of writing. You will experiment with poetry fiction, performance writing, radio, creative non-fiction, and new media. You will study in a vibrant and creative atmosphere, take part in innovative tasks to stimulate your creativity and become integrated into regional writing networks and benefit from placement opportunities. You will learn from staff who are published writers of poetry, novels (both literary and genre fiction), short stories, screenplays and audio-visual work. As Creative Writing thrives on dialogue with other subjects, you will study it alongside another subject, chosen because of the productive dialogue it establishes with your creative work. The joint honours option includes Drama which combines performance, theory and contextual study. You will have opportunities to act, script, direct and study the history of different theatrical traditions.
