Throughout this MA Creative Writing part 2 module from The Open University you’ll specialise in one of four writing genres: fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction or script. The module is organised into four teaching blocks and a further section of independent study where you’ll develop your ideas into a sustained piece of creative writing produced to a professional level.
Studying creative writing will equip you with an adaptable set of skills that can give entry to a vast range of occupations and career directions. You’ll develop sophisticated writing and communication skills, collaborative and editorial skills and learn to evaluate and assimilate information in identifying and solving problems, acquiring skills of critical thinking and analysis, independent working and creative thinking. You’ll also develop new, flexible, fluent and sophisticated research and IT skills.
All the above are skills greatly valued in the workplace – whether you’re already working, volunteering, planning to work freelance or changing career.
