Our Creative Writing MA degree is designed to equip you with a broad range of advanced creative writing skills and academic accreditation for your creative work.
Teaching is delivered by some of the most talented and original wordsmiths working today. Between them, they’ve published over 80 books, produced countless scripts for TV, radio and film, and won umpteen awards. The team includes author and journalist Will Self and renowned performance poet, writer and broadcaster Benjamin Zephaniah.
Our creative writing course has added four new pathways so you can choose your preferred specialism. This means you can opt to take the stand alone Creative Writing (general) programme or focus your learning on The Novel; Poetry; Publishing; or Screenwriting.
There are guest lectures covering different aspects of creative writing. Industry expert speakers include book publishers, screenwriters, poets and broadcasters.
You have the advantage of Brunel’s close location to London, the literary capital of the UK. You’ll benefit from trips to the British Library, Shakespeare’s Globe and West End theatres.
There’s the opportunity to get your work published before you graduate. An anthology of creative work is produced each year curated and edited by our creative writing students. Your writing talent can also be showcased at a variety of performances hosted by Brunel including poetry, plays, comedy and film screenings, literary debates, and the popular Brunel Writers’ Series.
Our MA in creative writing can be studied full-time over one year or part-time over two years.
