The Department of English & History is home to a well established Creative Writing section, in which students gain experience in all the major literary genres.

The Department also runs the highly successful MA in Creative Writing, and has a growing number of doctoral students pursuing creative projects.

The successful candidate will play an active role in the development of the university's new interdisciplinary Institute for Creative Enterprise; and external projects will be strongly encouraged, in order to generate publications suitable for submission to the Research Excellence Framework. You will have the capacity to contribute to both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, including at least one of the following subjects: poetry and screenwriting; expertise in fiction would also be welcome. You will provide expert teaching in a variety of modes, including writing workshops, tutorials and online interaction, and facilitate student work in a range of different media. You will be an excellent communicator with previous teaching experience at undergraduate level, and should have a positive attitude to the teaching and research goals of the Department.
