'I would recommend the MA to anyone who feels that they are fairly comfortable with their writing but could benefit from intelligent input to help it grow.'

What students said about attending the Distance Learning MA in Creative Writing Summer school 2012 and 2013

'It was brilliant to meet the other students and all the tutors face to face and everyone was so friendly. It was such a lovely week and I was really quite sad to leave.'

'Very useful to have a mix of students who could all share cultural experiences. Interesting to see a lot of pieces reflecting on culture, or with cultural nuances.'
