Case Studies

Studying Writing at University

In 2003, NAWE commissioned case studies from undergraduate and postgraduate students about their experiences of studying creative writing at university. These are available here, with some more recent additions.

Life after Graduation

Seven years on, we’ve asked some of the original contributors to bring their stories up to date with news of what they’ve been doing since they graduated. The resulting follow-up accounts offer a fascinating insight into the realities of life after graduation in which they talk frankly about their ambitions and expectations, the high points and low points, and offer advice for those starting out. Some of the graduates are now working as freelance writers, balancing their own writing with journalism and teaching. Some have forged careers in other fields, finding this the best way to support their writing. Others have been drawn to further academic study and have enrolled on Creative Writing PhDs.

The original case studies were published as a special edition of the NAWE Magazine. Buy now.
