Our staff in English are a nationally and internationally recognised team of practitioners, teachers and researchers who develop world-leading research and practice-led research. In 2018, 100% of our final year students were satisfied with their degree experience overall (NSS 2018). We deliver excellence in student experience through a distinctive and applied portfolio of degrees, and course enrichment opportunities.

You will teach on our undergraduate and postgraduate modules and will lead our work-based project modules for creative writing students, engaging students with an understanding of creative writing as an academic discipline. You will be central to the organisation and delivery of activities that engage students within the context of the wider creative industries. You will create collaborative working opportunities in creative writing between staff, students and external partners.

You must have experience of working in the creative and cultural industries, well-developed knowledge and understanding of critical, practical and theoretical issues relevant to creative writing as an academic discipline. The ability to inspire, enthuse and connect with a range of stakeholders e.g. students and external clients from a range of different and diverse backgrounds and evidence of a contribution to knowledge in your field e.g. publications or creative work in prose is essential. A good honours degree (i.e. UK 2.1 or 1st Class), or equivalent professional qualification and a MFA or MA in a relevant discipline or substantial professional experience is also essential.
