Creative writing masterclasses

The Master of Creative Writing masterclasses are led by tutors James George and Mike Johnson. The masterclasses are part seminar, part workshop and are a crucial experiential part of the programme.

These classes have been carefully designed to work in concert, and each tutor teaches blocks of classes in both semesters, so that there is a developmental follow through for creative writing candidates.
