The Creative Writing research group offers undergraduate instruction and mentorship in poetry, fiction, and drama. The Creative Writing research group is home to some of the most highly regarded poets, fiction-writers, and dramatists in the country. They specialise in diverse genres ranging from poetry and poetry in translation, to the short story, the novel, life writing, the literary essay, travel writing, and drama for the stage, radio and screen.
Both undergraduate and postgraduate students can study creative writing at St Andrews. Undergraduates studying English have the option to choose creative writing modules, whilst postgraduate students have the option of the MLitt or MFA in Creative Writing.

Specialist subject areas include (but are not limited to):
Old English literature
literature and ecology
literature and gender
Cold War writing
