This Master's in Creative Writing Prose Fiction at UEA is the longest-running in the UK, enjoying unparalleled success in terms of the publications and prizes achieved by its alumni.


Students take core creative modules, but can also choose from a wide range of critical courses available to all Masters students in the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing. MA students are also required to attend the Research Methodology series of lectures.


Students can attend follow-up tutorials with their class tutor each time their work is discussed in a workshop, plus each student is assigned a supervisor for support throughout their dissertation. The greatest asset of this MA is the cohesiveness and calibre of the talented students who join the course.
