This degree provides an exceptional opportunity to enhance both your creative and analytical abilities by developing your creative writing talents alongside the critical study of English through literature. As you might imagine, these disciplines complement each other in ways that are mutually beneficial; for instance, how better to understand the workings of a sonnet than by writing one of your own? Our experienced academics and practising professional writers will help you enhance your natural creative talent with technical, analytical and self-reflective skills. You will be encouraged to view your own creative work in the context of a wide range of literary texts, both historical and contemporary. In addition, there will be opportunities to interact with visiting experts (academic and creative) and people engaged in the publishing and production industries.
