About the Institute of Creative and Critical Writing
The Institute of Creative and Critical Writing exists to cultivate the literary arts and the life of ideas.
Based within the School of English at Birmingham City University, it both enriches the University's creative writing programme, through its series of masterclasses and guest author seminars, and engages with the wider culture beyond the University, through its calendar of exciting public events.
The Institute of Creative and Critical Writing comprises a distinguished Fellowship of writers, drawn from a variety of disciplines, whose combined insights and experience are at the heart of its work.
Besides its Fellowship, the Institute of Creative and Critical Writing works in partnership with other writers, scholars and organisations with shared aims, both locally and nationally, such as:
- Writing West Midlands
- Birmingham Literature Festival
- Library of Birmingham
- The National Association of Writers in Education
We have a number of public and private events throughout the year. To be kept up to date with the Institute of Creative and Critical Writing events, please join our mailing list and check out Eventbrite.
