This short film introduces Lancaster University's highly successful Distance Learning postgraduate programmes in Creative Writing and the work of the Centre for Transcultural Writing and Research (www.transculturalwriting.com). Since its inception in 1999, Lancaster's Distance Learning MA has rapidly evolved into an international programme, linking students in the UK and overseas through virtual learning. The programme is mediated almost entirely by online tutorials and conferences, with a residential Summer School at its mid-point. Those who join the programme study in groups of 18-20 students, exchanging writing in a range of literary forms and critiquing it from different social and cultural perspectives.
