About Creative Writing at University of Sheffield

This MA is designed to help you develop your creative writing to a publishable quality, providing a positive and nurturing environment for confident and imaginative development of poetry, prose, creative non-fiction and drama.

You'll study contemporary creative writing and develop your skills in a variety of different genres and styles, exploring your own writing through practical workshops, and learning how to creatively and constructively critique your own and other students' work.

You can choose to specilaise in either fiction or poetry, or to study a mixture of both. Our fiction modules will give you practical training in the essentials of fiction writing techniques across a number of genres, whilst our poetry modules allow you to explore a myriad of different poetic forms, including experimental and cross-genre poetry, visual poetics, prose poetry, and the hybrid.

Throughout the course, you'll study creative prose and poetry through appropriate and writer-centred theoretical frameworks, as well as learning the fundamentals of close reading, technical analysis and critical judgment of contemporary writers from a practitioner's point of view.

Writers on the course will benefit from the literary culture at Sheffield and are involved in readings, publications and festivals throughout their time with us. You're encouraged to publish your work and to participate in student-led, peer-feedback editorial sessions.

You'll be required to choose a minimum of two Creative Writing modules, one per semester. You can choose both poetry modules, both fiction modules, or one of each genre.
