- To offer students a critically supportive context in which to produce a sustained creative work in a chosen form.
- To enable students to recognise and solve problems in the writing process with reference to wider critical reading.
- To explore in detail the relationship between a literary work and its social and cultural contexts.
- To enable development of a reflective approach to writing and redrafting that will support future independent and self-critical practice.
This module is an opportunity for students to develop a piece of creative work along with a reflective commentary under the guidance of a supervisor. Drawing on ideas and techniques learned in modules on specific literary forms, which may be studied before or alongside this one, participants will be guided through the process of planning, drafting and redrafting a portfolio of work in fiction, drama or poetry. Discussions with a supervisor will encourage a reflective and critical approach to the creative process, informing a commentary on the decisions made during writing. It provides an opportunity to develop an independent writing practice in preparation for the Creative Writing MA Dissertation.
