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.
