Creative Writing


A writer reads an extract of her work to a lecture theatre of Creative Writing students.

Immersing you in the art of writing fiction, non-fiction, poetry, scripts and narrative games, our Creative Writing degrees enable you to find your creative voice, develop a flair for independent expression and construct your own fictional worlds.

You will gain the skills required to be a versatile, engaging and self-reflective writer, as well as an attuned reader and critical thinker.

Taught by a world-class community of writers, Creative Writing can be studied as a Single Honours degree or in combination with Drama, English Literature or Film Studies.


Students talk outside the front entrance to the Main Building.The Department of English, History and Creative Writing is based in the Main Building at the centre of the campus, near the £26m Catalyst building which includes the University library.

A prime example of 1930s architecture, the Main Building has undergone extensive refurbishment to combine a traditional setting with modern facilities, including the £15m Student Hub.

The building includes lecture theatres, seminar and tutorial rooms, which are ideal for group discussions and one-to-one tuition, as well as IT resources and social learning spaces.
