Yes I completely understand, the getting into publishing was an after thought, that is not going to be my primary parameter to choose between Warwick and UEA.
I'll apply for internships and work experience regardless of where I go (and I've already got some), but it would be great if you could tell me other pros and cons that can help me choose.
My problem is, there is plenty reason for both universities, as showcased on respective websites, but since I'm an international student, I can't exactly visit the two places, so most of my research is based on websites and forums.
This is the pre-eminent creative writing course in the country.
What the MA best provides is regular close discussion of student’s work and critical feedback, accompanied by a one-to-one tutorial.Situated in Norwich, England’ s first UNESCO City of Literature, the location itself is rich in literary inspiration.The year-round programme of literary events includes the hugely popular UEA Live, the Noirwich Crime Writing Festival, the International Literary Festival and endless spoken word nights and open-mic events.Most recently, Elizabeth Macneal won a six-figure advance for , gaining deals in 29 countries.The television rights also sparked a fight among production companies.One factor to bear in mind is that creative writing is UEA's signature course.Creative writing is to UEA what maths is to Cambridge, economics to LSE, meteorology to Reading, sports science to Loughborough. Think carefully about what you think this course will give you.Awarded a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education in recognition of continuing excellence and innovation, the UEA’s MA has been billed as the most prestigious Creative Writing programme in the UK ever since its creation.It is split into four strands: Prose, Creative Non-Fiction, Poetry and Scriptwriting, and there are numerous scholarships available to prospective students.See more by Jade Cuttle Jade Cuttle graduated from the University of Cambridge with First-Class Honours in Literature, going on to undertake an MA in Poetry at the University of East Anglia.Selected by Ledbury Poetry Festival as an Emerging Critic and winning Best Reviewer (Editor's Choice) in the 2018 Saboteur Awards, Jade has written for the Guardian, The Times Literary Supplement, The Spectator, The Times & The Sunday Times, the Observer, BBC Radio 3, BBC Proms, The Poetry Review and elsewhere.
