The Rhodes MA in Creative Writing

Rhodes University’s MA in Creative Writing is open for applications for 2014. You can do the course full time over one year in Grahamstown or part time over two years from wherever you live.  The MA includes 16 weeks of coursework from several teachers followed by a book-length creative work which can be written in English, isiXhosa or Afrikaans.  This can be a novel, non-fiction work, playscript, short story collection or poetry collection.

All the teachers on the course are practising writers: Joan Metelerkamp, Mxolisi Nyezwa, Brian Walter, Paul Wessels, Joanne Hichens, Anton Krueger, Ingrid Winterbach, Rian Malan, Godfrey Meintjes, Russell Kaschula, Hazel Crampton, Paul Mason, Eben Venter and Robert Berold.  Plus you will get input from writers in residence, who have recently included Lesego Rampolokeng, Kobus Moolman, and Soga Mlandu.

Entry to the course requires a twenty page portfolio of creative work and an honours degree. If you don’t have the necessary formal qualifications, acceptance is still possible with an extensive publication record and/or outstanding potential as a writer.

Deadline for applications is 30 October 2013 but entries are already open. Places are limited.
