What's it like/is it worth doing a creative writing degree?Watch this thread
I'd (preferably) like to do either something in publishing or secondary school (English) teaching for a career, but I'm not entirely certain yet. I'm quite interested in writing (novel writing and screenwriting in particular) for a career, which is my unrealistic ambition.
I'm thinking of looking into doing a joint degree in English lit and creative writing, but I'm not entirely sure what the creative writing aspect would be like solely based on looking at the course, or whether or not it would be worth it.
So, anyone who's more knowledgeable than me, what's it like doing a creative writing degree? Do you think it's worth doing one? Would you recommend/not recommend doing a joint degree in English lit and creative writing?
