New, Genre Creative Writing MA

Edinburgh Napier University has launched the UK's first genre-based Creative Writing MA which could change the landscape of creative writing in Scotland.


This is via the literaturetraining newsletter - more details on their website here; information on the part-time degree here, and the full-time degree here.


NB: I do not work at Napier University, have never worked there, and I'm not endorsing the course (never having been on it). I just thought it was interesting that someone was providing a course specific to genre fiction - although they seem to have left off a couple of genres as historical fiction, westerns, and romance aren't mentioned (although perhaps that's due to a lack of tutors/ perceived lack of interest from potential students - who knows?)

Middlesex University is also offering a new Creative Writing MA in Science Fiction and Fantasy. With which, like you, I have no connection...

Ah, interesting. Didn't know that.
It's also interesting to see what they acknowledge as genre fiction and what they ignore.
I wonder how many applicants they'll get?

Yes, although with the govmint capping the total number of students that universities can take there may be more (many more) disappointed applicants vs happy almost-students.

Newspaper figures estimate up to 80,000 applicants may not even be offered a place this year. (Sunday Telegraph)
