Course content

Research in English and American Literatures, in which Creative Writing is situated, has a long and distinguished history at Keele. Creative Writing has been formally established as a thriving and energetic graduate programme at MA and PhD levels (the PhD programme has been running successfully for two years). Indeed, the University has over the years played host to many eminent writers, most notably the distinguished poet Roy Fisher, who taught in the Department of American Studies (1971-82). The Roy Fisher Prize for Poetry is a poetry pamphlet prize awarded yearly to a student, and endowed by the Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.
