Only you can write the book that you would write, be it a collection of poetry, a novel, a memoir… Nobody else could write it like you could write it. The purpose of the UCC MA in Creative Writing is to give you the tools to write that book, and many more after it. As well as honing the techniques and craft of creative writing, the UCC MA in Creative Writing is also designed to prepare you for a career in publishing, and the creative arts; to introduce you to the publishing industry (engaging on a weekly basis with published authors and publishing professionals) and to connect you to your most creative and productive self; to provide access to the community of writers that exists, both in the wider world and in Cork, a thriving literary scene; to give you time to write; to introduce you to other emerging writers, like-minded individuals on the same pathway as you. To empower you.

The School of English in UCC treats writing as a living, evolving practice: students taking the course will read and write in a context in which literature is being performed, transformed and adapted, and in doing so offer you a safe space to learn, to practice, and to develop your craft towards inventive and authentic forms of expression. The course as a whole encourages and supports a full exploration of the creative self while also maintaining a strong vocational emphasis.

Skills and Careers Information

The MA in Creative Writing provides an excellent foundation for a variety of writing and publishing careers, including authorship across a range of forms and styles, journalism, teaching, publishing, and arts administration. The design of the MA fosters contacts with agents, publishers, and the professional world of the creative industries; it also produces well-crafted writing in one (or more) of the forms of creative writing. Students experiment with, engage with, and reflect on a diversity of writing practices and establish an awareness of the role of technique and craft in their own work. They also learn how to interact with peers on an editorial level, and to understand the importance of editing and revision in the process of writing. Developing appropriate research methods and recording processes of self-reflection are also key components of the MA, encouraging students to reflect upon and discuss the conceptual challenges of the creative process, key contexts and practical concerns. Finally, the MA fosters in its students an understanding of the practical constraints and professional opportunities of life as a writer, and a lifelong relationship with the written word.
