The MA Modern and Contemporary Writing has two main focuses: the relationship between key writers of high modernism and contemporary literature, and between creative and critical writing. Our course draws on UEA’s strengths as one of the largest and most distinguished departments for 20th-century literature in Britain and as the UK’s leading department in Creative Writing and in Literary Translation. We believe that the critical study of literature can also be creative, and that creative writing is always in itself an act of criticism. At UEA, literary critics and theorists rub shoulders and exchange ideas with practising poets, novelists, dramatists and biographers. You’ll also have opportunities to develop your interests in translation and in neighbouring disciplines such as philosophy, film, anthropology and American studies.
