O que eu aprenderei?

Join our diverse postgraduate community of dedicated and talented writers. Our teaching staff’s research expertise ranges across all the major genres and mixed genre writing, offering an extensive supervision experience in contemporary writing.

Research topics include:

contemporary poetry and poetics
novel and short story writing
drama radio and screenwriting
hybrid writing
transgressive writing
the creative process

The research undertaken will have a strong practical creative focus. The aim will be to produce a thesis which contains a ground-breaking and original text of publishable standard and a complementary discourse which contextualises its critical and creative aspects. As well as research students at MA and PhD levels, there’s a very strong taught MA by research programme in creative and critical writing in the department, which provides a healthy and diverse postgraduate community of dedicated and talented writers. We enjoy an established research reputation, having been recognised for our world-leading and internationally excellent research output in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.

There’s also a thriving and vibrant extracurricular cultural and literary scene in the county, which further enriches our research environment. For example, students benefit from the Dymock Poets Archive and Study Centre, containing manuscripts, first editions and other materials relating to Robert Frost, Lascelles Abercrombie, Edward Thomas, Rupert Brooke, Wilfrid Gibson and Eleanor Farjeon. The university library also includes a wide selection of contemporary writing and creative writing journals. Applications for interdisciplinary research degrees in creative writing and in other areas are also possible. Our system of using a supervisory team, as opposed to an individual supervisor, makes this mode of study particularly appropriate for interdisciplinary study.

This research contributes to the subject community Literacy and Critical Studies and the research priority area Being Human: Past, Present and Future.
