Welcome to the Nottingham Creative Writing Hub at Nottingham Trent University

Nottingham Creative Writing Hub is the central place for writers at Nottingham Trent University, hosted by the Department of English, Linguistics and Philosophy. NTU is the home of dynamic and long-established undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Creative Writing, with an exciting and thriving community of writers. Here you will find links to our courses, member profiles, and information about events, awards and publications.

The University has some of the finest writers in the country, in fiction, poetry, scriptwriting, creative non-fiction, and other genres. Many of our members are also academic and press critics. This is a great place to find out about what they do, what they’re up to, and how you can get involved. We believe in community and communication, the principles of free speech and open inquiry, and great writing – wherever it comes from.

If you are a Hub member, or are in any way affiliated with our activities, and wish to have an article considered for publication on the Nottingham Creative Writing Hub blog, please contact the Hub Convener Rory Waterman at rory.waterman@ntu.ac.uk, or via the contact link.

English at NTU is also home to the Postcolonial Studies Centre, the Critical Poetics Research Group, and the Periodicals and Print Culture Research Group. Most of our more senior members are also members of one or several of these, and the points of connection are multiple and varied. We urge you to check them out too.
