"The best piece of writing advice anyone ever gave me was: don't do it for any other reason than because it's in your bones. Storytelling has always been in my bones, and I love sharing this passion with our students, helping them develop their own writerly instincts, techniques and voices. Of course, stories are never just stories: by learning to express ourselves, we learn to reach our fellow humans and to live better in the world. It's a privilege to see our Creative Writing community at the University grow in confidence and accomplishment, and take their places on the wider writing and publishing stage."
Please note this course map is indicative of the structure of this course and may be subject to change.
A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.
A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
Course Maps and Module Descriptors from previous years can be found in the Course Resources Archive.
