Student’s (and parent’s) most Frequently Asked Questions

Why study Creative Writing?

Creative Writing is free expression without any boundaries. It's the chance to use your imagination to write a piece of literature that connects with whoever you're sharing it with. Studying creative writing allows students to deconstruct a text in order to discover the message and underlying ideas of the author. The skills you develop have broad applications. From children’s books, to film scripts, via award-winning novels, students go in a variety of directions. Creative Writing classes at university can provide students with powerful insights that can affect other aspects of their life. 

What university degrees is Creative Writing useful for?

There are many university degrees that one can specialise in when it comes to creative writing. Your writing skills will come in handy, especially in journalism, literature, language, communication, linguistics, media, filmmaking, communication, and advertising. Creative Writing is also useful as the skills can be applied to many other fields such as psychology, sociology, business, marketing, political science, and law.

What careers does studying Creative Writing lead to?

Creative Writing is helpful in many fields and careers. It can be applied to the entertainment industry like screenwriting and scriptwriting, as well as other forms of media such as journalism, literature, film, etc.

It is also useful for business people because it can help them engage their audience with innovative content.

How does Creative Writing help with Journalism?

As a Creative Writing graduate, you will learn how to write in a professional manner. This is important because this type of writing requires formal and distinct language while still being personable and relatable to your readers. You can use the skills that you have learned from the course on many different mediums, such as websites or newspaper articles. In addition, it will help you develop a more imaginative way of looking at things that leads to better story ideas.

Creative Writing and journalism are similar in many ways, such as the fact that both contain strong research skills and critical thinking. As a creative writer, you will have to carefully assess texts written by others or other sources. This is crucial as it helps you gain credibility with your audience since they know that what you write about has been personally verified in some way. This means that if you are looking to pursue a career in journalism, then your creative writing skills will come in handy.

How expert tutoring can help you?

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Online classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable in, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.
