MA in Writing

If you’re an ambitious practising writer (whether published or not), this award-winning MA run by professional writers will develop your writing skills by providing the space and stimulus to write within an imaginative, challenging and supportive community.

One of the largest and most comprehensive of its type in Europe, the programme will enable you to develop the appropriate skills to enter employment in areas heavily focused on the written word. Our Warwick Writing Programme provides you with excellent links to other writers, publishing houses, literary journals and agencies, and organisations such as the Arts Council, PEN and the Royal Literary Fund. We also have strong relationships with other creative writing schools, both in Britain and in the USA.

Many of our postgraduates enter the writing industry as professional writers, freelance journalists, editors, copywriters and publishers, and others progress into teaching, marketing and administration.
