Welcome to the Lancaster Writing Programme - one of the longest established and most prestigious writing programmes in the UK. We have hugely successful campus and distance learning programmes at both MA and PhD level.
The Lancaster Writing Programme employs teaching staff with a wide variety of research interests across many forms of writing. From poetry to long prose fiction, flash fiction to work for radio, short stories, creative non-fiction and hypertext novels, we all practice and publish in many different forms and genres.
The Lancaster distance learning MA has rapidly evolved into an international programme, linking students in the UK and overseas through virtual learning. The programme is mediated almost entirely by online methods with a residential Summer School at its mid-point. You will be a member of a cohort of 18-20 students, exchanging writing in a range of literary forms and critiquing it from different personal and cultural perspectives.
The programme at Lancaster is entirely student-centred and tutorials involve the close critiquing of creative work. We respond to individual needs through the allocation of a personal tutor who will be an expert in your chosen genre. Online conferences enable tutor and peer response within a smaller group of five students.
This is an exciting, supportive and non-residency online course that offers you the opportunity to develop your writing practice at the times that work for you, wherever you are in the world.
The School of Design, Culture & the Arts enjoys purpose-built, industry-standard facilities including 4,000m2 of studio space, a convergent newsroom, broadcast news studio, multimedia publishing studios and computer suites.
