Organisation profile

Our intellectual character is formed through a unique conjunction of literary criticism, creative writing and literary translation.

We are renowned for our interdisciplinary research and have also established research interests across most periods of English writing, including modern and contemporary writing, medieval and early modern literature, and the long-nineteenth century.

Our reputation in critical and creative writing is based on award-winning works of fiction, poetry and drama, as well as innovative writing across the creative-critical border, such as works of creative non-fiction.
