The research within the Writing, Literature and Culture group is scholarly, outward-facing, socially-engaged and impactful.
As researchers, we examine young readerships through the study of children’s literature, explore practice-as-research through fiction, poetry, script and non-fiction, develop digital and multimedia outputs and critically engage with textual representations of gender, race, class, sexuality and the post-human. Our research is broad and we have a commitment to the many different publics who interact with writing, literature and culture as the site of creativity, communication, experiment, analysis and critique.
Our researchers produce high-quality research outcomes across traditional and non-traditional research, and our staff include award-winning and internationally renowned writers and scholars publishing with prestigious presses.

There is also the WLC Seminar Series every 1st Wednesday of the month from March to November.
