Faculty Appointments

We are looking for someone to teach the writing of poetry, prose or plays, and to help conceptualize and plan a curriculum. The department offers a small but growing number of courses in creative writing, and is keen that further additions will take place in the context of a coherent plan and a developing programme. The appointee will take a key role in conceptualising such developments.

Applicants should have a PhD or other graduate qualification at an equivalent, experience in the teaching of creative writing, and a good record of publication.
