Creative Writing - Working with others

Creative Writing staff have developed a number of working relationships with others locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. The programme includes a Level 2 module, Publishing, Production, and Performance, dedicated to graduate employability. Students on this module have the opportunity to comission, edit and produce the annual anthology, Beyond the Walls, featuring work from Creative Writing students about to graduate. Others are involved in organising a showcase in which students perform their creative work live. We also have a creative writing blog, contributed to by staff and students, which provides information on competitions, job opportunities, events, student news, reviews and more.

Focus on:

Aesthetica magazineAesthetica magazine is a York-based publication run by two York St John graduates. Established in 2003, it is billed as ‘the UK’s only art publication to view the arts as an interdisciplinary whole and covers visual art, literature, music, theatre and film in every issue’. The editor, herself a former student here, has visited our students and given inspiring advice about her success, and some students have completed internships at the magazine.
