With seminars focusing on topics such as dialogue, form, and character development, you will gain a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of poetry and prose. Workshops will give you a chance to share work with your peers, allowing you to give feedback and learn from each other. You will apply the knowledge you gain from these sessions to the research, planning, and production of your own mid-length dissertation project.
A master’s in creative writing will allow you not only to build on your skills, but also your professional network.
The recently launched creative arts magazine, The Canvas, is curated and edited by our own students, and encourages community and collaboration between staff, students, and other creatives local to Reading.
Careers in industries such as journalism, publishing, marketing and teaching are just a few of the routes that creative writing at Reading could take you.
