Staff Profile

Liz Flanagan

Teaching Fellow in Creative Writing


My interdisciplinary research interests include creative practice and the writer- as-researcher; creative writing pedagogy; and young adult and children’s literature; 

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.
