Hey, I got postgraduate offers for University of East Anglia and Warwick for the creative writing course. UEA is MA Creative Writing Poetry While the Writing Program at Warwick is slightly different: you choose 5 different modules over two semesters ranging from non-fiction, children's fiction, eco-poetry, music, script etc.

While currently I'm leaning towards poetry writing and would like to specialize, I wouldn't mind trying out prose as well (but I haven't written a lot of prose for a while so I'm slightly less confident).

It isn't going to help you indeed it may hinder you with a career in publishing because everything about it says you are only in publishing until you can establish yourself as a writer. What employers want is experience and proven practical skills rather than endless bits of paper.

Yes I completely understand, the getting into publishing was an after thought, that is not going to be my primary parameter to choose between Warwick and UEA.

But each module at Warwick is a semester long: so I don't know how sustained the workshop experience will be.

I know ultimately it's how much time I dedicate, but the course structure and all will surely make a difference too.

Poetry: Tiffany Atkinson, Denise Riley, Sophie Robinson Fiction: Trezza Azzopardi, Amit Chaudhuri, Andrew Cowan, Giles Foden, Philip Langeskov, Jean Mc Neil, Henry Sutton, Naomi Wood Nonfiction: Vesna Goldsworthy, Kathryn Hughes, Rebecca Scott, Helen Smith, Ian Thomson Scriptwriting: Ben Musgrave, Molly Naylor, Steve Waters, Timberlake Wertenbaker The program offers full and partial funding.

There are currently 11 donor-funded scholarships, ranging from a £1,000 fee waiver to the Booker Foundation Scholarship, which covers fees and living expenses to a value of £25,000.

Both have excellent faculty and UEA has prestigious alumni list.

So, I wanted to know other parameters to measure pros and cons: - which course is more employable, for e.g., if I wanted to work at a publishing house next, which course should I choose?
