English Literature and Creative Writing

Through the English Literature and Creative Writing degree, you will explore the past and present of literature, analyse why things are the way they are, and collectively imagine how you might enact change.

“The Warwick Writing Programme’s sense of community between fellow writers provides such a welcoming and supportive platform for both students and staff. I’ve met some of my closest friends through the WWP, and developed my poetry and fantasy writing with the support of my peers.

Being in the WWP undoubtedly strengthened me as a writer and opened my eyes to the possibilities of what I can achieve. “

Bella Hopper, Third year, English Literature and Creative Writing student
