Announcing the MA in Writing Poetry Scholarship

We’re delighted to announce that Newcastle University is offering a scholarship award for 2019 entry worth £7,400 (full fees) for an outstanding applicant to the Poetry School / Newcastle MA in Writing Poetry.

The Scholarship will be awarded on a competitive basis to applicants who have already accepted an offer of a place for 2019/20 entry on the MA Writing Poetry. The MA is a two-year, part-time course based at either Newcastle University or The Poetry School, London.

This accredited MA uniquely combines masterclasses, workshops and individual teaching with a core footing in the professional poetry world, encompassing all aspects of creative practice.  There is expert tuition from nationally and internationally renowned poets: Glyn Maxwell and Tamar Yoseloff (London); Tara Bergin, W.N. Herbert, Sinéad Morrissey and Jacob Polley (Newcastle). Students come together for a one-week summer school in July, alternating between the two cities each year.
