About The Creative Writing (Hons) Programme at Leeds Arts University
Writing is a valuable social currency and opens up doors. The course offers unique opportunities to develop a portfolio of creative and critical writing in a lively and stimulating environment. The creative possibilities of the written word are enhanced and invigorated by working collaboratively alongside new and established visual and performing arts courses.
You’ll write in the real world and be encouraged to enter competitions, write for review, write to briefs, and write alongside visual and performative creatives. You will be guided through a range of creative writing landscapes including writing for performance, prose writing, short fiction, art criticism, poetry, script writing, and novel writing, new media and zines. You will be encouraged to think locally and globally about the place, purpose and reach of writing, exploring online platforms as well the potential of the festival, gallery and event space.
You will learn to successfully employ a range of critical thinking skills that will enable you to make sound and valid judgements about the value and role of fiction and non-fiction, becoming a critical reader, thinker and producer of language. You’ll consider the role of writing as a social, cultural, historical and political meaning maker, and explore its contemporary relevance.
A positive approach to a writing life is emphasised. You are encouraged to develop cultural awareness and a reflective, self-aware and critically analytical mind-set that will equip you to take on the writing world with a portfolio of transferable skills.
