About Creative Writing at Liverpool John Moores University

At LJMU, which developed the UK’s first Single Honours Creative Writing course, we put an emphasis on a writer’s career and take special care to instil not just the craft but also the practical approaches needed to become a professional writer. All our staff are published authors, and the Creative Writing university textbooks we have produced are used worldwide.

During this degree, you will study prose, poetry and scriptwriting in your first year andand go on to specialise in the disciplines that challenge you the most to produce your best work. Our acclaimed Writer at Work module engages specialists in digital publishing, arts-in-health and literature development and other areas giving you an in-depth understanding as well as experience of the writer’s professional world.

The degree is taught in our £38 million Redmonds Building, located in the heart Liverpool, a vibrant student city, renowned for its cultural events, readings, music events and art galleries.

Teaching by our expert academic team is enhanced by prestigious visiting writers from the worlds of prose, poetry and scriptwriting who deliver readings or workshops.

The Creative Writing residential in Snowdonia, which takes place towards the start of the first term, is a chance to participate in a writing retreat that will kick-start your creativity. It also allows you to get to know your peers and tutors.

In The Red, the student-run magazine of the Creative Writing department, regularly hosts student readings and open mic nights where you can hone your performance skills. Each year, three final year students take over the editorship of the magazine.

Notes about fees for this course

The fees quoted are those for the 2018/19 year as information for 2019/20 is not yet available. The Department for Education (DfE) have recently announced that they will be freezing tuition fees for the 2019/20 academic year. However, this is still subject to the normal parliamentary approval. Once 2019/20 fees are confirmed we will update our web pages accordingly.
