Summary

Take time to write your novel, poetry, short stories or non-fiction under the supervision of our published, prize-winning writers. The Warwick Writing Programme, founded in 1996, is the largest and most comprehensive of its kind in Europe and has been ranked number one in the UK for creative writing teaching and research for five years.

The Warwick Writing Programme is now accepting applications for our new PhD in Literary Practice. Creative writing is beginning to take its place in the academy across Europe as well as in the Anglophone world. Taking a doctorate in a creative practice is a way of qualifying for a teaching and/or research career in higher education in the UK or elsewhere. You might also be interested in this degree if you want not only to complete a novel, short story, poetry collection or work of creative non-fiction under the supervision of well-known writers and teachers, but also to situate your own writing practice in relation to literary traditions, theories and new developments. PhD theses, albeit in creative form, will be founded on rigorous research, reflection and participation in academic life.

The Warwick Writing Programme, as part of the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies, came first in the UK in the last Research Excellence Framework. The WWP now forms part of an exciting new development at Warwick: the School of Creative Arts, Performance and Visual Cultures. We offer our PhD students the attention of our best writers and scholars; a place in our real and virtual spaces where writers at all stages of their careers listen and speak to each other; and all the artistic and scholarly resources of a world-leading university located between several exciting cities.
