This chapter will discuss creative writing and its role as a practice-led research discipline in relation to forms of cultural identity. What kinds of research are involved in a postgraduate degree in creative writing and how does an international and transcultural writing community give them a special resonance? How does research in creative writing relate to other forms of academic research and how do its artistic outputs relate to readerships both inside and outside the academy? How can notions of culture help us to understand and locate literary works as a manifestation of new understanding or configurations of knowledge?
