MA Creative Writing

The programme develops the writers, editors, publishers, cultural curators and writing teachers of tomorrow who create narratives that migrate from Singapore to the world's exponentially growing literary production and publishing market.

You will acquire a deep appreciation of the written word and the construction of written forms such as poetry, creative non-fiction, fiction, screenplays and ficto-critical writing through standard modules and regular writing workshops and peer learning.

You will gain both breadth and depth through workshops devoted to all the major genres – fiction, non-fiction, poetry and drama – followed by a creative thesis project written in the genre of your choice. This sustained study of writing, editing and publishing provides you with a critical, theoretical and historical framework for analysing literature, art, communication and arts pedagogy.

Intensive graduate writing workshops with visiting writers (including Asian and Singapore voices), consultations with our published writing faculty, workshop peers, guest writers and industry professionals improve writing, reading and editing abilities, while providing meta-lessons in perception, creative problem-solving, social-emotional intelligence, communicative precision, interpersonal diplomacy, community, empathy and human nature.

You will be able to participate in local and regional writing festivals to build awareness of networks, circulation and reception of the written word. Graduates have already made a significant mark through works published by international literary publishers, as well as winning literary awards, particularly in Singapore.

Professional education: Learn from established and emerging writers from Singapore and Southeast Asia.

Professional network: Study alongside novelists, poets, playwrights, video game writers, screen writers and non-fiction writers.

Industry connection: Attend and participate in literary festivals in Singapore and Southeast Asia.

Real-world knowledge: Develop your understanding of the Singapore and global publishing industries.

The LASALLE MA framework is one that aims to provide graduates with a competitive edge that will meet the demands of the dynamic cultural and creative sector.

The MA framework has the following common structure:

Core modules You will study three core modules* according to your chosen programme of study. These modules aim to equip you with discipline-specific skills relevant to your area of research inquiry. *For the MA Art Therapy and MA Music Therapy programmes, there will be additional modules for clinical placements.

Common module – the Agora The common module, the Agora, has been designed to prepare you for the intensely collaborative experience of a creative career. You will be guided to reflect on the ‘place’ of your particular discipline in society, the economy and the environment. You will consider and experiment with combining your discipline with others (multidisciplinary), blending your skills and knowledge with those of other disciplines (interdisciplinary) or even discovering new ways of working together (transdisciplinary).

The Final Research module Research methods will be embedded into the Final Research (thesis) module. Within this module, formal and dedicated ‘research weeks’ will occur in the first and second semesters. The research weeks will be distinctive points within your programme to allow you to concentrate fully on your research. The spread of its delivery is intended to provide you time to reflect, synthesise and consolidate your learning, and develop your research questions. You will also be provided six hours of supervision of your research.

Besides the immersion in the postgraduate research culture built through shared learning modules, the MA framework provides a transformative educational experience designed to shape you into a future-ready professional, equipped with the skills and expertise demanded by the industry.

LASALLE uses a 5–point Grade Point Average (GPA) system, which will be applicable to all students admitted with effect from AY2024/25, to track students’ academic progress throughout their studies. Students receive letter grades for each module taken. Each grade corresponds to a grade point as shown below:

The Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) represents the grade point average of all modules attempted by the student. A minimum CGPA of 2.50 is required for graduation.

The computation of CGPA is as follows:

All modules, including repeat attempts, are included in the computation of the CGPA with the exception of modules that are exempted or where students were absent with valid reasons.

The classification of award and corresponding CGPA requirement are as follows:

LASALLE recognises the important role of artists and designers in creating a sustainable and caring world. The curriculum provides opportunities for students to identify and explore issues around sustainability (from ecology and global climate change to the sustainability of their own creative practices and wider cultural communities) and care (for the well-being and advancement of oneself and others).

The College actively encourages students to engage with and investigate these crucial contemporary issues as part of their studies, including through their projects, and critical and creative outputs. Through interdisciplinary learning and strong engagement with these topics, the aim is to empower students to lead the way towards sustainable practices and caring communities within the cultural and creative industries.

Basic materials for learning are provided by the College.

As a developing artist, you are required to have certain items that are personal to you and cannot be shared. Such items include books, dance shoes, rehearsal clothes, safety boots, portable musical instruments, paints, canvas, basic tools, design software, cameras, etc., that will support you through your three-year learning journey. The College does not encourage the purchase of extravagant or costly materials or equipment. Our lecturers can provide you with affordable suggestions.

You are also encouraged to have your own laptop for education. If you do not own one, computer labs are available on campus with requisite software for you to undertake your work.

There may be opportunities for you to undertake extra-curricular study trips to enhance your overall learning. Trips are not compulsory and may incur additional costs.

Creative Writing Recipe: GAME ON!

It was like any other day when you were plugged in to your favourite game. Outside, the rain was coming down in sheets and claps of thunder punctuated the sound effects from your game.

All of a sudden, a flash of lightning tore across the sky and the room went black. At the same moment, you felt yourself being pulled by a force forward and there was no stopping it. “Ahhhh!” you screamed as you felt yourself travelling at the speed of light through a tunnel of blur.

As suddenly as it began, it stopped. You blinked as you looked around and you realised. You are no longer playing the game. You are in the game.

The good news is you are not alone.

In order to exit the game, you need to acquire several creative writing skills and your game master aims to:

  • teach you to describe a setting vividly using your five senses
  • introduce two ways of building up towards the climax of a story via characters and insertion of clues
  • provide you with a framework (AIM) to create compelling characters
  • aid you in adding details to the climax of a story
  • show the transference and application of techniques in composition writing
