COURSE OVERVIEW

  • Refine your writing across a range of styles and genres
  • Understand where your work fits in the diverse world of publishing
  • Be inspired and encouraged by guest writers, editors and literary agents

Creative Writing at Winchester offers you the opportunity to evaluate and improve your creative writing in a dynamic, supportive environment. The programme is taught by professional writers: novelists, scriptwriters, poets and writers of creative nonfiction, as well as cultural critics and playwrights. There are opportunities to meet agents, editors and published writers, and as your knowledge of the publishing industry expands, find out where your work fits within the market.

You study twentieth century and contemporary literature, which allows you to explore different styles and genres and gain a critical foundation for your own writing while increasing your knowledge of the publishing world. The structure of the programme enables you to focus on one or more genres (for example, fiction, creative non-fiction or poetry) during the year.

Throughout the course, you create and workshop your work in an encouraging group of peers, starting in the first semester with a module that focuses on contemporary fiction alongside a module about research and what this means for you as a writer. In the second semester options may include Contemporary Non-Fiction, Contemporary Scriptwriting for Film and Television, and Advanced Contemporary Poetry. Through the Publishing Project you engage with writers, agents and editors through readings and workshops, exploring publishing opportunities for your own work.

Graduates of the course frequently obtain publishing contracts, while others work in other aspects of publishing, or in teaching, media, the arts and business.
