The course aims to develop you as an arts professional.

00:00:09,00 --> 00:00:011,00
There's a creative core where you do workshops.

So today our guest lecturer was Dan Eltringham, and that was very interesting to me because he talked about nature, the different feelings that nature made us have and words we could use.

00:00:24,00 --> 00:00:27,00
There's an employability core where we learn about the business of publishing.

00:00:27,00 --> 00:00:35,00
I've done a lot of writing, a lot of academic writing, but I always felt I'd like to try to write fiction.

10
00:01:00,00 --> 00:01:09,00
We'll also point people towards their life after the MA, and that may be through publication, it may be employment elsewhere.

00:01:09,00 --> 00:01:15,00
