PhD Studentships for practice-based digital creative writing, writing for games, and transmedia at Bath Spa University
Bath Spa University has a very strong creative writing PhD programme (both campus based and low residency). With the Sept 2012 professorial appointments of Kate Pullinger and Naomi Alderman, the university is rapidly increasing the presence of digital literature, writing for games, and transmedia within the creative writing programme. The university has just announced 10 PhD studentships, available to both international and home/EU students; 5 of these will be creative practice PhDs.
Please get in touch if you are interested, and spread the word far and wide.
