Course summary

Take time to write your novel, poetry, short stories or non-fiction under the supervision of our published, prize-winning writers.

Course Overview

The Warwick Writing Programme is now accepting applications for our new PhD in Literary Practice. Creative writing is beginning to take its place in the academy across Europe as well as in the Anglophone world. Taking a doctorate in a creative practice is a way of qualifying for a teaching and/or research career in higher education in the UK or elsewhere. You might also be interested in this degree if you want not only to complete a novel, short story, poetry collection or work of creative non-fiction under the supervision of well-known writers and teachers, but also to situate your own writing practice in relation to literary traditions, theories and new developments. PhD theses, albeit in creative form, will be founded on rigorous research, reflection and participation in academic life.

The Warwick Writing Programme, as part of the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies, came first in the UK in the last Research Excellence Framework. The WWP now forms part of an exciting new development at Warwick: the School of Creative Arts, Performance and Visual Cultures. We offer our PhD students the attention of our best writers and scholars; a place in our real and virtual spaces where writers at all stages of their careers listen and speak to each other; and all the artistic and scholarly resources of a world-leading university located between several exciting cities.

Teaching and supervisions

Each student will have one or two supervisors, at least one of whom will be among the Professors and Associate Professors of the Warwick Writing Programme. You will meet with your supervisors, together or separately, at least once a month during the teaching year (if full time) or twice a term (part time). These meetings should normally be in person but may sometimes be conducted remotely when convenient to both parties. You will also have a personal tutor, whose role is pastoral. There is no taught component of this degree, but each student is invited to a one-to-one meeting with our subject librarian to explore resources for his or her project. Students will participate in the online research skills modules, seminars, talks and events provided for and by research students in the department.
