Organisation profile

The Lancaster Writing Programme is one of the most prestigious centres for new writing in the country. 2013 marked the 30th anniversary of the Lancaster Writing Programme at Lancaster University. This makes the Lancaster Writing Programme one of the longest standing destinations for writers across the country. Moreover, with 13 permanent members of staff, we are one of the largest.

Our writers are prize-winning specialists across a number of forms, from poetry and the short story to work for radio, novels and creative non-fiction and our creative interests are wide-ranging – with recent work engaging with national and international debates around landscape, literature and place, literature and religion, transcultural writing, creative-critical work, myth, history, genre and literature in the digital age.
