The dissertation should demonstrate creative achievement in one of the genres of
• poetry (including song-writing (texts) for musicals or cabaret),
• drama (including musicals/musical theatre, film scripts and radio/TV drama), 
• prose (fiction),
• prose (creative non-fiction: biography or autobiography), or
• literary translation/adaptation.
In itself it should be a complete work, or set of complete shorter works and should in substance be the equivalent of at least (in fiction) a short novel or a collection of short stories, or (in poetry) a book-length collection of poems, or (in drama) a full-length play or a collection of at least three one-act plays. The dissertation should then consist of a substantial piece of creative writing, accompanied by a theoretical section (a dissertation of limited scope) in which the candidate reflects upon contexts and influences, and/or upon the process of composition and revision that has taken place in the production of the creative text and/or upon theoretical aspects (eg symbolism, textual and intertextual strategies) of the work. This section accounts for 50% of the final mark.
