UEA Creative Writing Course

UEA Creative Writing Course

The University of East Anglia's Creative Writing Course was founded by Sir Malcolm Bradbury and Sir Angus Wilson in 1970. The M.A. is widely regarded as one of the most respected in the country and competition for places is notoriously tough. Alumni include Ian McEwan, Kazuo Ishiguro, Anne Enright, Tracy Chevalier, Louise Doughty and Andrew Miller and a number of other well known writers.

The course is split into three branches: Prose, Poetry and Scriptwriting (which is Skillset accredited). All three result in an M.A. qualification upon successful completion of the course. The Course Directors are currently Andrew Cowan, Professor Denise Riley and Val Taylor respectively.

Academics such as Angela Carter, Rose Tremain, Andrew Motion, Michael Laskey and Paul Magrs have also taught on the course.
