About

The Creative Writing programme of the University of Surrey performs fresh, innovative, world-leading research across literature, writing and linguistics, with our undergraduate creative writing courses ranked in the top 10 in the Complete University Guide and The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide.

Overview

Why choose this programme

We’re at the forefront of new knowledge in fields including literature, translation, language, linguistics, creative writing, and film studies. With a strong focus on research and writing in international contexts, the Creative Writing programme of the University of Surrey can provide you with a network of research links and support for your professional or academic career.

Our research in modern and contemporary writing is diverse and includes both literary-critical and creative work. Our approach to contemporary writing encourages the connection between creative artists and literary critics and theorists. In particular, we explore: the work of living writers; the tradition and future of innovative writing; the environment and climate change; the nature of publishing as an innovative and radical political enterprise; medical humanities; literature and the body; questions of literary and political freedom; and distinctions between ‘genre’ and ‘literary’ fiction.

Our diverse mix of subject specialities means we’re a vibrant and imaginative community with lots of opportunity for intellectual exchange.
