Students enrolled in the MA in Creative Writing begin their two-year programme with a workshop taught by the programme director, Prof. Imraan Coovadia. Immersive and intimate, the workshop affords students the opportunity to share their writing in a nurturing and structured space, and receive detailed feedback from both Prof. Coovadia and their peers.  

As part of the programme, students can also apply for a variety of other creative writing courses, including the Centre for Film & Media Studies’ Narrative Literary Journalism, as well as in poetry, screenwriting, travel writing and more.
