Writing is an extremely powerful tool and a highly desirable skill sought after by many professions. On this course you will develop a striking portfolio of creative and critical writing, collaborating with visual and performing arts peers in a lively, stimulating environment.
We welcome students with a passion for writing and a desire to find their voice. Surrounded by other creatives, you will push the boundaries of imagination and produce diverse output. Lectures and seminars cover contextual, historical, and cultural material. You and other students will act as fellow writers, readers, and critical friends.
Writing workshops explore language building blocks and audience engagement. We have a designated writing room - a calm space to nurture contemplation and the exploration of the written word. We encourage students to write in varied environments and take trips to inspirational indoor and outside spaces.
You will write abundantly, entering competitions, writing reviews, and producing content for real-world briefs. Alongside visual and performative creatives, you will explore online platforms as well as the potential of the festival, gallery, and event space. You will analyse writing for performance, prose writing, short fiction, art criticism, poetry, script writing, novel writing, new media, and zines.
You are encouraged to develop cultural awareness and a reflective, self-aware, and critically analytical mind-set that will equip you to take on the writing world with a portfolio of transferable skills. By the end of this programme, you will have desirable skills as a critical reader, thinker, and producer of language.
