Course summary

Our PhD in English with Creative Writing encourages distinctive approaches to practice-based literary research. This route allows you to develop a substantial research project, which incorporates an original work of creative writing (in prose, poetry, or other forms). As part of a thriving community of postgraduate researchers and writers, you will be supported by world-leading experts with a wide range of global and historical specialisms, and given access to unique resources including the department's letterpress printing studio, writers-in-residence, and our prestigious Writers at York events series.

Applicants for the PhD in English with Creative Writing should submit a proposal for their overall research project, along with samples of creative and critical writing, demonstrating a suitable ability in each. Proposals should include plans for a critical research component of 30-40,000 words and a creative component written to its natural length (eg a book-length work of poetry, fiction, or creative nonfiction), while demonstrating a clear relationship between the two.
