Hear from our students

We seek to make a difference. Delivering research-informed teaching in English Literature, English Language, and Creative Writing, we actively engage with public audiences and organisations. But don’t take our word for it. Hear from some of our students about the activities they have been involved in, what the best things are about their courses and what it is like to be an Edge Hill student.


Creative Writing

Meet our students

“I’ve changed as a person since I started at Edge Hill. I’m definitely much more confident in my writing style. I’m able to let my own personality and flair shine through in my writing now.”

“I was so timid when I first came to Edge Hill; I didn’t even want to show anyone what I’d written because I was scared of being rejected. I’ve got so much confidence now, I’m like a different person.”

Lucy, current BA (Hons) Creative Writing and English Literature student

“Studying Creative Writing at Edge Hill has helped me discover what I really enjoy writing. Eighteen-year-old me thought she wanted to write horror novels; now I enjoy writing (and finishing) comedy scripts! This degree has taught me so much and set me on a path which I’d never expected to follow.”
