Creative Writing research

Creative Writing is taught at the University of Hertfordshire as a part of the School of Humanities undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

What we do

  • Publish creative work in fiction, poetry and drama.
  • Combine creative writing practice with teaching.
  • Engage with community projects.
  • Explore the practical and interdisciplinary applications of Creative Writing.
  • Combine heritage and creative applications in outreach projects, working with local museums and schools.
