MA in Creative Writing (CKE10)


“I decided to return to Ireland for an MA program in creative writing because my experience studying abroad in Dublin was so rewarding and because my course at UCC is a perfect fit for me. During my semester abroad, I joined a creative writing club at UCD and met Irish students who encouraged me to write and even published one of my poems in their student journal. After my positive experience there, I researched graduate writing programs in Ireland. The course here at UCC is focused on Irish literature and is more practically oriented than most programs in the US.”
