Study

Victoria's Creative Writing programme has a national and international reputation for developing the potential of some of the best writers in New Zealand.

We have built a strong workshop culture, reflecting our belief in the importance of nurturing individual voices within a lively community of writers.

Our programme features a range of specialised undergraduate creative writing workshops, as well as Master of Arts and PhD creative writing programmes.

All creative writing courses have limited entry status. This means that workshop numbers are restricted, and entry is competitive. The quality of the writing sample submitted with your application will be central to the selection process.
