About the course

Hull has a long and illustrious association with creative writing; being the former home of poets Andrew Marvell and Philip Larkin and featuring alumni such as Douglas Dunn and Roger McGough. Your studies as a Creative Writing and English student are enhanced by the Larkin Centre, which attracts internationally renowned visiting authors, as well as new talent. Creative Writing at Hull - ranked second in the North of England for graduate prospects by The Times University Guide 2015 - is taught across a wide range of genres by published poets, novelists and biographers.

This three-year programme will develop your confidence in writing by moving from the development of core skills to self-directed longer pieces of writing while experimenting in different genres. The English aspect of the course imparts a sophisticated awareness of the critical debates in the discipline and allows you to become familiar with major periods of literary expression.
