During the course you’ll be focusing on three key areas of study – realism, genre and adaptation.

Realism explores the way in which writers bring their experience of the world to the page, while genre looks at how particular expectations and rules determine what we are able to write and also how we are able to break them.

Adaptation examines how the written word crosses from one genre to another. During this module, you will look at how novels are transformed into plays and films and think about ideas of fidelity and work in all key forms of writing.

The Research Methods module will prepare you creatively and critically for your final dissertation.

Through a process of discussion, exploration, analysis and interaction, you’ll work towards the production of a publication-standard creative manuscript.

Final dissertation pieces range from collections of poetry to excerpts of novels, short stories and hybrid forms which combine elements from different strands of creative writing.
