About the course

Studying creative writing at NTU will allow you to develop and build on your writerly skills, while offering you an opportunity to work with a range of published writers and academics. You’ll find yourself at the heart of an active writing community in a UNESCO City of Literature. Designed for talented and committed writers, this course will introduce you to the intricacies of writing including plot, characterisation and narrative study. You’ll learn all of the skills required to master the craft of writing, alongside other skills essential to the modern writer, such as editing, drafting, pitching and performing your work. You’ll also learn how to give and receive criticism in a tough but supportive environment. You’ll be encouraged to follow your instincts and push yourself outside of your comfort zone. You’ll experiment with writing in a variety of genres, including fiction, poetry, children’s and young adult fiction, and writing for radio, stage and screen. A wide range of optional modules place the emphasis on student choice, enabling you to follow your instincts and interests. Our focus on employability will ensure you have the skills and experience necessary to succeed in your future career. We work closely with agents, publishers, producers and other key industry professionals in the arts and creative industries, to provide work placement opportunities that will introduce you to the idea of writing as a profession. Our English and Creative Industries Project provides an opportunity to produce a portfolio of critical and reflective writing in a small group, led by a project supervisor. Classes are mostly workshop-based and you’ll produce new writing on a regular basis, which contributes to your portfolio of assessed work. You’ll keep an ongoing writer’s journal containing work in progress, notes and reflections on your creative process. Good writing and creativity are workplace skills that are highly valued by employers. Creative writing graduates have embarked on careers in writing, journalism, publishing, teaching, the civil service, marketing and advertising.
