Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Right now I still have one year left and I am doing an Open University degree.
    BA(Hons) Humanities in English Literature and Creative Writing. It seems I maybe able to pull off a 2.1 for the Creative Writing part but 2.2 overall.

    I want to do a Masters in Creative Writing and have a few questions and some advice here would be really appreciated.

    Contextual Info: I will be having a book published (collection of poetry) soon with a top press. I run a literary review and have worked with world renowned writers.I have many years of being published in literary journals and newspapers.

    1. What kind of universities would i be able to get into with the above circumstances? My grades are unfortunate i know so will my c.v help?

    2. would universities like Edinburgh,U.E.A, Durham, Queens(Belfast) accept me into the C.W masters program? What other options are there, if not?

    Thanks in advance
