Dr Jack McGowan, Course Leader for Creative Writing, receiving his award for outstanding teaching in Creative Writing, after being nominated the students.

“Studying creative writing at the University of Worcester was the best choice I have ever made. I went into my degree knowing I wanted to be a writer, but I didn’t realise there was so many variations. The lecturers made sure we were exposed to all sectors of the creative industry and helped all of us reach our full potential and break into our selected career paths – something I’ll forever be grateful for.”

By combining Creative Writing with Screenwriting, I felt like every assignment, every piece of work and every lesson added to my growing portfolio.”
