Develop your own distinctive voice as an author and explore the theory and practice of building a diverse portfolio of work across forms and styles with the Creative Writing degree at Lincoln.

With a strong focus on employability, the course aims to prepare you for a professional writing or publishing career. You can learn from our enthusiastic team of internationally-renowned professional writers and academics whose work has been widely published, broadcast, and performed across the fields of short and long form young adult; contemporary and historical prose fiction; poetry; non-fiction; scriptwriting for stage, screen, graphic novel and audio; psychological thriller; science fiction; and fantasy.

Teaching and learning is centered on the writer’s workshop, where there is a strong emphasis on participation. You can learn the habits of a professional writer, including keeping a writer’s journal; research and observation; redrafting and editing; and presenting work to a high standard. Self and peer appraisal are important, as are paired and small group work.

Modules are underpinned by a sense of an audience – ranging from a student’s seminar group through electronic and paper publication to performance. Exclusive to Creative Writing at Lincoln, you will have the opportunity to be involved in The Lincoln Review (www.lincolnreview.org), an international literary journal edited exclusively by undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The programme is enriched by workshops, readings, and masterclasses with visiting contemporary authors. Former Poet Laureate Dame Carol Ann Duffy became a Visiting Artist at the University in 2015, and regularly visits Lincoln to engage with students and read a selection of her works. Recent students have also enjoyed a masterclass with TV presenter and author Chris Packham CBE, who is a Visiting Professor at the University.
