Postgraduate Diploma in Creative Writing

Available face-to-face or wholly online

The PG Diploma in Creative Writing is a two-year part-time programme, aimed at writers wishing to develop their creative and critical skills at an advanced level. The programme adopts an all-encompassing approach to the discipline of creative writing, taking in a variety of genres and exploring the major forms of prose, poetry and scripts.

The programme starts in late September/early October each academic year, as well as a second start date in January each year for online students – places are limited to ensure a constructive atmosphere for workshops.   

This is a part-time, postgraduate-level programme delivered in a fully-supported learning environment. Students can exit with a Postgraduate Certificate after successful completion of the first year if their circumstances change.

We offer this course both face-to-face and wholly online. To find out more please visit:
