UEA Creative Writing moves from Belstead House to the library.

'Yours Truly' has spotted and writes the following.....

You asked for anything connected to writing in Suffolk?

Checking out http://www.uea.ac.uk/ earlier I noted Creative Writing is no longer held at Belstead House but at the library.


Creative Writing 60 credits

Students applying for the Diploma in Creative Writing should have successfully completed at least 10 credits of a Continuing Education introductory level Creative Writing course, or equivalent. Applicants are also asked to include a sample of recent writing (approximately 500 words) and a brief CV giving details of any publications etc.

An approach to creative writing for people who have some experience of writing or of studying literature. It provides a disciplined structure for you to develop and apply your understanding of your abilities as a creative writer in a responsive environment. It will be helpful for those who are developing professional and/or academic careers.

Throughout the one year course there will be opportunities for practising skills and for discussion and critical debate in writing and orally, under supervision by the course director and other experienced tutors and writers. Feedback on written work is given by tutors and by members of the group.

The Diploma concentrates on the writing of poetry and fiction. There is also some focus on the skills of critical appreciation of published poetry and fiction and on presentation skills. The assessment is based on two elements; a journal and a portfolio of writing including a reflective self-evaluation and future work plan.

Previous groups have produced an anthology of writing based on a selection of course work. Sessions with visiting writers will be arranged. A successful and popular component has been a residential weekend school, and there will be one such weekend during the course. It is used specifically for individual tutorials and intensive writing exercises, together with the opportunity to work with one or two guest writers.

The course fee does not include the cost of the residential weekend (approx. £80) and production of an optional anthology.
