Creative Writing Classes!
I was lucky enough to do my Creative Writing MA (2009) at the University of East Anglia – Europe’s leading MA in this subject. A number of my class-mates have gone on to literary acclaim and have risen in the field of Creative Writing education.
Priscilla Morris progressed to do a PhD in Creative Writing at UEA and has since taught acclaimed classes at Kingston University. She’s now launching her own course at Lauderdale House in North London. Priscilla’s one of the best tutors in her field and if you’re London based and considering furthering your creative writing skills – this is where you need to be.
From Ireland, Sue Healy is Literary Manager at the Finborough Theatre, London, a full-time Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Lincoln. Her book on theatre literary management is published by Routledge, December 2022.
Sue is an award-winning writer for stage, TV, and prose writer.
Her current project, a 6x60minute TV series, is under option. She is under commission with Lone Wolf Media, producers behind PBS’ “Mercy Street”, to co-write the pilot and treatment for a six-part TV series.
Her most recent stage-play, Imaginationship (2018), enjoyed a sold out, extended run at the Finborough and later showed at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough. Her previous stage productions include Cow (Etcetera Theatre, 2017) and Brazen (King’s Head Theatre, 2016), funded by Arts Council England. Sue’s short plays have been performed at the Criterion (Criterion New Writing Showcase), Arcola (The Miniaturists) and Hackney Attic (Fizzy Sherbet Shorts).
Her radio work includes nine plays broadcast on BBC Radio 4 (Opening Lines winner), WLRfm and KCLR96fm.
Sue has won The Molly Keane Award, HISSAC Prize, Escalator Award, Meridian Prize and has been published in nine literary journals and anthologies including: The Moth, Flight, Tainted Innocence, New Writer, Duality, HISSAC, New European Writers. She has been writer-in-residence on Inis Oírr, Aran Islands, and at the Heinrich Boll Cottage on Achill Island. She has also benefitted from annual artist residencies at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, and at Ginestrelle, Assisi in Italy.
An academic with a PhD in modern theatre history, specifically the Royal Court Theatre, Sue has presented her research internationally. She spent eleven years in Budapest, editing Hungary A.M. She has a PhD in modern theatre history (Royal Court Theatre) and is a UEA Creative Writing MA alumnus.

I’m thinking about applying to this program as an International student from the USA. Do you have any advice?!

Hi Kait, this is an evening course for people living in the area – it’s not something you would travel from the States to attend. If you are interested in creative writing classes I imagine there rare some in your own area. I would try out an evening class there and then perhaps you could look at a study abroad programme with a creative writing focus, via an American university.
