You'll have a fabulous time, discovering and exploiting your own creativity, developing your reading, research and study skills, and cultivating and refining your writing while you're on your chosen programme with us. And, together with Literary Dundee, we offer you many opportunities to submit your own work for publication and to experience different aspects of publishing at first hand. Here's just a selection of our Dundee publishing opportunities:
- write for, proof-read or edit our in-house prose and poetry magazine, Dundee Writes which is distributed to agents, publishing houses and libraries across the UK
- review novels, poetry and short story collections, theatre and film for our in-house online magazine, Dundee University Review of the Arts (DURA)
- submit your novel for the annual Dundee International Book Prize, the UK’s premier prize for debut novelists
“Since beginning Creative Writing at the University, I’ve had work published in New Writing Dundee and Dundee Writes. I’ve had several short stories published in magazines”.
