Course summary

Our PhD Creative Writing programme gives you the opportunity to work on a significant piece of creative writing while developing your research skills. You will benefit from creative supervision by an experienced poet or fiction writer and draw on the range of expertise within the University to find a supervisor for your critical element. The PhD will normally consist of an extended and original piece of creative work and a shorter critical evaluation in which this creative work, and its contexts, are discussed and analysed.

The PhD will require you to develop your research skills and, to this end, you will be able to undertake a research skills audit and attend seminars and workshops on research methods in the first year. In this way, you will participate in training seminars across the field of arts, languages and cultures, which will develop useful research, teaching and IT skills. You will also attend seminars in relation to publication, authors' rights etc, which will be particularly useful to students of creative writing. Specialised research training, and a wider postgraduate research culture within which your work will develop, is given through a programme of writing workshop masterclasses in which students take it in turns to have their writing workshopped by the other Creative Writing PhD students, supervisors and visiting writers from outside the institution.
