Creative Writing at Kent

You can study Creative Writing at all levels within the School of English. For undergraduates, we offer a degree in English and American Literature with Creative Writing. At postgraduate level we have both a taught Masters and a research Masters in Creative Writing, and PhD options in the area. There is also the option to study the taught MA either entirely in Paris or with a term there.

We also hold a number of creative events, both on campus and in the city itself. Amongst other things, we have a weekly reading series during term time that plays host to a wide range of leading authors reading from their work, as well as publishing industry professionals. Our staff are all published writers and continue to write - some of their work is photographed above.

The MA in Creative Writing is open for applications from students wishing to start in September 2016. Apply by Friday 25th March 2016 to be considered for one of our generous scholarships.
