What will I learn?

The breakdown below will provide you with an illustration of what you may study during the three year degree scheme.

This degree is based on our strongly held belief that in order to become a really great writer you need to be a good reader, whilst offering you the flexibility to develop as a writer across a range of creative modes. During your first year you will develop foundational skills in the interpretation and analysis of literary texts, alongside your study of basic writing skills.  Throughout the course you will use your knowledge of literature and textual production in your own creative work, exploring the relationship between creative and critical practice.

 In the first year you will discover:

  • A range of techniques for reading and writing fiction and poetry;
  • Modes of descriptive writing;
  • The importance of plot;
  • Printmaking;
  • Drawing and Painting; 
  • Life Room studies; 
  • Art History; 
  • The use of dialogue;
  • Some key figures from literary history (from Shakespeare to the Brontës);
  • Lesser known texts, and writers who are new-to-you;
  • Interdisciplinary thinking and practice
  • A variety of “ways of reading” and some theoretical approaches to textual analysis;
  • “The critical commentary” and research skills for writers.

In the second year you will explore:

  • The theoretical approaches to, and the practice of, literary criticism;
  • Your own writing style, informed by your reading and research;
  • A programme of tutor-led self-directed practice and research that evidences an experimental approach and gives expression to a personal voice as an artist;
  • A self-critical approach to creative working and professional methods;
  • your art practice within contemporary contexts and historical traditions;
  • A number of specialist topics chosen by you (these might focus on a specific genre (such as crime fiction), historical period (such as the Victorian era), or theme (such as “transpositions”).

Students following this degree programme have the flexibility to take option modules from the departments of Film, Theatre and Television Studies, and Welsh and Celtic studies, both of which offer a number of creative writing modules in areas such as scriptwriting, writing for radio, writing for television and much more.

In the third year you will master:

  • Theory for writers and the application of theoretical perspectives the production and critical evaluation of your own creative work;
  • And produce a body or work that demonstrates conceptual and technical coherence; 
  • The subject and conceptual bases acquired over three years to produce a body of qualitative work for public exhibition;
  • Extended writing and independent research in your final year writing project (chosen and defined by you with the support of a published author);
  • Your own specialisms drawn from a diverse range of option modules taught by writers in those fields. Our option modules include topics such as Elizabethan drama, the ghost story, queer fiction, writing for children, science fiction and fantasy, and much more.

In your final year you will have the opportunity to take part in a writing retreat at a country house in mid Wales - an amazing opportunity to spend time with fellow students and staff, developing your final year projects and dissertations, in a splendid rural setting.

How will I be taught?

Our course is delivered through a range of traditional and non-traditional settings with particular emphasis on workshops and discursive seminars. Lectures are not the norm but are used when it is essential to convey specific, knowledge-centred, material. One-to-one tutorials will also be a regular feature in your timetable, particularly towards the end of your programme of study.

We assess our students through portfolio submissions, essays and, on some modules, traditional examinations and presentations.
