Scope and content
The files forming this collection were deposited by Sir Malcolm Bradbury in 2000.

Since 2015 this collection is incorporated in the British Archive for Contemporary Writing (BACW).

UEA’s MA Creative Writing Course was founded by Sir Malcolm Bradbury (1932-2000) and Sir Angus Wilson (1913-1991) in 1970. The course was offered by the former School of English and American Studies (EAS) and its first candidate was English novelist Ian McEwan.

EAS was dissolved on 1 August 2004 and three new schools came into existence: Literature and Creative Writing (LIT), Film and Television Studies (FTV) and American Studies (AMS).

Further restructuring occurred in subsequent years and the course is now offered by the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing (LDC).

Contains 6 boxes and 15 files. In addition there are 2 shelves of MA dissertations.

Contains copies of students' screenwriting scripts and short stories submitted between 1992 and 1995 under the course leadership of Malcolm Bradbury, Professor of English and American Studies at the University of East Anglia, 1970-1994. Also included are MA dissertations, printed ephemera and correspondence from foreign conferences and tours, and coursework papers deposited after Malcolm Bradbury’s death.

It contains correspondence, course administrative papers, course work and notes, and papers relating to examinations held at the UEA and other universities.

A later deposit of files in 2013 was added to UEA/BRAD. This later deposit included a large collection of newspaper and magazine cuttings, film, radio and television scripts and other writings by Bradbury.
