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.

  • Dr Wayne Holloway-Smith (contemporary poetics of masculinity)
  • Simon Vinnicombe (contemporary drama and play writing, screen writing, drama adaptation).
