English Literature and Creative Writing in Cambridge

Book your place among the literary greats…

Come to Cambridge and you will be stepping into the shoes of some of the world’s most preeminent writers. High calibre authors like E M Forster and Zadie Smith are counted among the university’s alumni. Meanwhile, C S Lewis taught here, and household-name poets like John Milton and Siegfried Sassoon are among the university’s alumni.

The city itself has given rise to some great novels, from Tom Sharpe’s Porterhouse Blue thought to Virginia Woolf’s Jacob’s Room. So on this Cambridge-based summer course, the combination of English literature and creative writing will teach and inspire you in equal measure.
