Course Summary:
Creative Writing is one of the fastest growing disciplines in UK universities and for good reason: it is an opportunity to explore the multi-faceted world of literature while enjoying the creative freedom of one's own imagination, and improving writing, communication and research skills. This exciting programme enables you to work in a variety of genres, from writing for the web, to learning how graphic novels work, to penning your own poetry and fiction. You will be taught by published writers and academics, with a range of professional visiting writers giving workshops and readings throughout the degree programme. This is a sociable and challenging creative course, providing a range of transferable skills. The course emphasises the importance of creative practitioners and is enhanced by regular visits from contemporary writers. Visiting writers have included York-born award-winning novelist Kate Atkinson; poet and broadcaster Ian McMillan; novelist and poet Michèle Roberts; novelist Joe Dunthorne; graphic novelist and illustrator Graham Rawle; and award-winning poets Simon Armitage and Daljit Nagra. York St John maintains links with the regional literary community through events such as York Literature Festival. Modules are supplemented by visiting industry professionals, agents and publishers.
Modules:
Level 1 is a foundational year which introduces you to literature and creativity in their cultural and historical contexts. Level 2 allows you to focus on specific genres and forms of writing and provides the opportunity to develop employability skills. At Level 3 you explore the relationship between the creative and the critical and have the opportunity to produce a substantial creative project. Modules may include: Forms of Narrative; Writing Fiction; Writing Reality: Creative Non-fiction; Writing Poetry; Scriptwriting; Publication, Production & Performance; Experimental Writing; Genre Writing; Creative Research in Practice.
