From The Bookseller:
The University of East Anglia is adding a Masters in Crime Fiction to
its Creative Writing program, which will launch in September 2015.
The new Masters will address the genre from a critical, theoretical and
historical perspective as well incorporating a large Creative Writing
component. Publisher Little, Brown will be supporting the course by
sponsoring a £3,000 award for one student and also reading the
manuscripts each student will produce by the end of the course,
providing feedback and links to publishing opportunities.
It will be a low-residency course, with students attending three short
residential periods a year over the two-year program. These
residential periods will introduce students to key industry
professionals, including literary agents and publishers, and major
writers in the genre, who will run masterclasses. Ongoing creative and
critical projects, presentations and interactions will continue between
visits to the UEA.
The MA will also be launching with at least one full fees bursary, provided by UEA’s Centre for Creative and Performing Arts.
