BA ENGLISH LITERATURE WITH CREATIVE WRITING Q3W8

Full Time: 3 Years
Explore literature from all angles with our BA English Literature with Creative Writing course.
English literature and creative writing are a perfect combination at degree level:
In your literature modules, you will be introduced to important, exciting, diverse writers from across the centuries and the globe.
In creative writing, you will explore literary creativity from the inside: creating characters, shaping poems, and drawing on your imagination.
The two sides of the degree complement and challenge each other. The great writers from the past and present who you study will inspire and influence your writing. Meanwhile, creating your own work will help you understand technique and form in ways that will sharpen your analysis of literary texts.  
You will learn from active, prize-winning authors from our Department of English Literature. These academics have years of experience with the nuts-and bolts of writing, and they will closely read and advise you on your work. 
Our academics have also published research on everything from medieval poetry to contemporary Caribbean and American fiction, and they will help you to develop your own literary enthusiasms.
