University of Cambridge Creative Writing Summer Programme

when 31 July 2016 - 13 August 2016
duration 2 weeks

The Creative Writing Programme builds on a rich literary tradition at Cambridge: it is designed for participants who wish to develop their existing writing skills. Elements will focus on the writing of poetry, fiction and non-fiction, in a range of genres and styles. Course Directors – all established writers – will set practical writing tasks, and guide students in critical reflection on their own work and that of their fellow students, as well as on the work of published writers.

Students are expected to put in a minimum of two hours per weekday of writing as private study. Participants may elect to use free time at weekends for a sustained period of writing. The course is intentionally rigorous, and all applicants must demonstrate a high level of fluency in English in their applications.
