Creative Writing - Manchester Metropolitan University

If you want to get serious about creative writing, Manchester Writing School – with a proven reputation for developing gifted students into professional writers – is the ideal place to start. Embark on our Creative Writing degree and from the very start you’ll study and practise the art and craft of writing in a wide range of established and new forms, from prose fiction and poetry to screenwriting and writing for computer games.  You’ll learn from established poets, novelists and scriptwriters at Manchester Writing School – writers who know what it takes to turn a flash of inspiration into award-winning words on the page. The course also has a strong emphasis on professional development and in our practical ‘Beyond the Page’ unit you’ll look at professional practice in the literary industry and working in the cultural industry in general. In our workshops, you’ll study the formal aspects of creative writing as well as putting your own skills into practice.  All of this culminates, in your final year, in a challenging creative writing project of your own. And for those looking to develop their craft still further, this degree is excellent preparation for our Masters in Creative Writing.
