This Thinking Space piece discusses the value of teaching literary geography in British universities. Building on the discussion at 2017's Literary Geography conference in Cambridge, I argue that teaching literary geography to university students can encourage them to consider the variety of ways in which they, as readers and as young geographers, approach and create literary spaces. Relatedly, it can help us as practitioners to recognise the variety of voices, both critical and not, that contribute to the creation of literary space and its interactions with other spaces.
