Creating Writing PhDs

A distinctive feature of the research culture within the School of English is the ‘practice as research’ thread of postgraduate programmes. Our academic staff include a number of published authors and poets, who teach on both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and continue to publish their own work.

The Centre for Creative Writing

The Centre hosts a very popular and successful weekly reading series; guests have included poets Katherine Pierpoint, Tony Lopez, Christopher Reid and George Szirtes, and novelists Abdulrazak Gurnah, Ali Smith, David Nicholls and Will Self.
