Hi all,

I'm scouting out Creative Writing MFA programs and haven't seen any alumni reviews of the courses at City University London. I'm curious about both the Fiction and Non-Fiction tracks.

How were the workshops?
Was there enough reading/analysis of contemporary work?
Did you feel as if your writing improved as a result of the course?
Were the professors legitimately interested in you and your work?

I live in the United States, so there is next to no 'word of mouth' about creative writing programs in the UK. How does City hold up to UEA?

Thanks!

Margaret

I'm a new applicant this year based in Edinburgh. It would be more straightforward to try and scout out previous or current students/graduates from your desired course and email them.

Hi Margaret,

I am also from the USA and was recently accepted to this program. I'm curious to know if you received any feedback or what information you found?

Thanks!

Hi Kayti,

Margaret hasn't logged into the site for 18 months.

If you quote her as I have you, it's possible that she might have opted to have Email notifications. Even that is a long shot, though.

Hi Kayti,

Congrats! I never did receive any input about City University. I decided to go to the University of East Anglia. They have a fantastic MA creative writing program - it's quite prestigious in the UK. I'm really enjoying it and happy with the decision. Check it out!

Best,

Margaret

Thank you for the response! I will definitely check it out! Have you heard anything about City since living in London?

Anyway, enjoy your program - what a great experience!
