Dr Kieron W
DPhil English Literature, University of Oxford - Kieron is currently a freelance poet and teacher, specialising in creative writing. His first collection of poetry, The Mortal Man, was published in 2015. He was the first poet in residence at Rydal Mount since Wordsworth, and the first poet in many years to read from his own work at Dove Cottage, Wordsworth's home.

Dr Amanda H
DPhil Chaucer's Poetics, University of Oxford - Amanda specialises in Medieval English literature and the English language. Her first book was on Chaucer's poetics; she edited Tottel's Miscellany, and worked on a book and database on rhyme in medieval and sixteenth century love lyric. She's currently working on a new book about anthologies of ‘English verse’ and the fantasies of England they project. It picks up on her longstanding interests in poetry anthologies and the agendas which drive the critical framing of texts and uses them to explore an area which is particularly topical given the ongoing debates around Brexit and the drive for Scottish independence.

"I loved having people from different cultural backgrounds in my course-- they brought experiences to the conversation that I had never encountered before."
"The course gave me an insight into how to make arguments in support of or against certain positions which is useful in Law and the tutor assisted me in how to structure these arguments."
Aarupi, United Kingdom
I’ve enjoyed the company of having a roommate and that you make so many new friends and you just get to meet new people and that’s fun.
"The favourite thing about my subject was that for the first time I felt like I was challenged, coming from a person who has taken Computer Science for 3 years in school (at GCSE and A Levels), which was kind of exciting and intimidating at the same time."
"The tutor asked us questions that I wouldn’t normally ask myself, and I feel like I really grew during the course."
