Creative Writing at Liverpool Hope will give you the chance to experience the joys of crafting the written word. The degree focuses on developing you as a writer of poetry and prose (fiction and non-fiction), broadly within the field of literature (poems, short stories, novels, long-form essays). Some professional writing - reviews, blogs and articles for different kinds of media - is also studied. Our focus on creativity and employability means you will be able to produce engaging, innovative and marketable texts.
By studying Creative Writing, you will be empowered with an enhanced command of your craft, increased confidence in expressing your thoughts and emotions, an understanding of the values that inform your writing practice, and the technical skillset to deliver your work to various audiences. Your writing will be enhanced by studying under celebrated writers and academics, as well as developing a range of workplace skills to prepare for fulfilling careers.
The degree will often challenge you and ask you to reach beyond your own experience and interests into those of contemporary and historical communities. Using these as creative stimuli, you will be required to reflect upon social contexts, power, and how truth and justice can be communicated or miscommunicated through creative writing. By the end of the degree, you should have a wide appreciation of forms, genres and applications. Included in the degree are field trips to Wales, and Liverpool museums and galleries, which provide material for writing exercises as well as widening your student experience.For more details and information about this course visit:
Technologies related to gaming, augmented and virtual realities have transformed the creative possibilities of all of the performing arts. This is as true for large-scale mainstream music concerts or theatre and dance productions through to more experimental music and performance artists.
The growth of importance of these technologies cannot be overstated in terms of creative innovation as well as economic and employment growth. The Digital Creative is an area of noted importance of economic investment and growth on Regional (North West) National and Global levels.
The programme of study will explore interactive and immersive digital programming environments and appropriate design techniques and their truly transformative effect upon all of the performing arts.
Students will be supported in the realisation of advanced projects such as digital scenography, interactive audio/visual projections, all of which will incorporate Game, Augmented, or Virtual Reality techniques – technologies that are transforming the way that we envision, create, perform and consume the performative arts.
This new programme could be partnered with another performing art – dance, music or drama – or subjects such as computer science or Artificial Intelligence, to make a truly innovative study experience.For more details and information about this course visit:
