School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing
Welcome to our School.
In our corridors you'll bump into world-class writers about literature and into the people who are writing literature today: prose, poetry, plays. It's that thrilling meeting of criticism and creativity – reading and writing, thinking and doing – that makes our School such a special place.
This is why we say that UEA is the place where literature lives.
