    Basically, my friend wants to do English Lit and Creative Writing at University, but she doesn't do well in poetry, so she wants to know if there are any English Lit and Creative Writing degree courses with no poetry section and if not, which has the minimum?

    Thanks!

    Think carefully about doing a degree with 'Creative Writing' in the title.

    1) Employers dont like it. It sounds like something you do at Primary School.

    2) It wont 'make you into a writer'.

    Better to look at a more general English course, one that contains optional 'writing' courses but also gives you a more solid sounding degree qualification.
