Creative Writing at DMU has modules which are organized around stimulating themes such as place, identity, and the relations between word, image, and sound. Within these students develop skills in a wide range of forms, including fiction, poetry, screenwriting, creative non-fiction, audio and performance writing, and new media. In the first year, the focus is upon shorter work, and the importance of developing students’ editing and re-drafting skills; and their capacity to accept and evaluate feedback from others.  This process will enable students to take a critical and reflective approach to their work (Both creative and reflective writing will be assessed). At second year the assignments lengthen, and the focus upon research intensifies as students are expected to situate their own writing alongside their reading of other writers in the field. In the final year, such knowledge is pushed further by making students consider how their sense of the ways in which creative work is published and marketed will help them understand how their own practice might fit in – or resist – contemporary conventions.
