About

Our Creative Writing Research degrees at University of Glasgow  are unique and intense programmes for practising writers who wish to complete an ambitious creative project, representing a distinctive contribution to the field of Creative Writing. The Creative Writing programme is offered at University of Glasgow.

Overview

Features 

  • Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow is based in the Edwin Morgan Writing Room with its book, periodical and audio-visual library.  There is an ambitious programme of visiting speakers, masterclasses and public events.  The University Library with its modern collections and archives is a crucial resource, including the archive for Edwin Morgan’s Papers. 
  • Across all our postgraduate provision, both taught and by research, students have access to the best of the new and also develop a sense of the origins and histories.

Programme Structure

Curriculum: 

  • Both programmes give you dedicated, supported time to complete a substantial creative work, include opportunities to teach writing to undergraduates and apply to be a graduate teaching assistant for other literature courses, and the DFA additionally allows you to undertake an extended academic research, informed by your work and practice, leading to a significant critical essay or output. 
  • Our students enjoy the guidance of writers including Carolyn Jess-Cooke, Laura Marney, Elizabeth Reeder, Jeffrey Robinson, Michael Schmidt, and Zoe Strachan, and critics such as John Coyle, Jane Goldman, Rob Maslen, Alan Riach, and Helen Stoddart. 
  • Our research degrees incorporate hybrid taught elements (literary and practical seminars; workshops; and practical pedagogy) within a supervised research context that best support your creative and critical work.
