Staff Profile

Liz Flanagan

Teaching Fellow in Creative Writing


My interdisciplinary research interests include creative practice and the writer- as-researcher; young adult and children’s literature; creative writing pedagogy; literary constructions of landscape and wildness; and feminism and contemporary writing by women.

My practice-led doctoral research examined the process of writing creatively for young adults with reference to my novel Eden Summer. It went on to explore the defining characteristics of YA literature, and how they affect the process of writing it.

I am currently editing my second novel, for publication in 2018.
