Byte Lunch: How to DIY a Creative Writing MA

September 22, 2022

Do you wonder if you need a master’s degree to succeed as a writer? Creative Writing MA programs have become enormously popular, and they offer expertise, structure, and guidance. But they can also be expensive and time-consuming.

We’ll discuss what you learn on an MA program, what comes next, and how you can implement parts of a program in your own writing life, without the tuition fees.

Monica Cardenas is a writer and freelance marketing consultant (including for Byte The Book), and holds an MA and PhD in Creative Writing from Royal Holloway, University of London. She is a fiction reader for Litro Magazine and has taught creative writing at the undergraduate and postgraduate level.

This event is only open to Byte The Book members. You can join us via
