Centre for Anglo-German Cultural Relations, School of Languages Linguistics and Film
Established in 2005, the Centre for Anglo-German Cultural Relations' (CAGCR) Writer-in-Residence Programme showcases recent developments in contemporary German, Austrian and Swiss literature. This initiative is financed by the Deutscher Literaturfonds, and administered by the German Department's German Academic Exchange Service Lektor(in). The CAGCR hosts writers whose work is representative of critically acclaimed contemporary literature in German and enables visiting authors to reside at Queen Mary for short periods of around ten weeks.
The Royal Literary Fund Fellowship
The Royal Literary Fund Fellowship scheme was conceived with the intention of placing professional writers in higher education institutions to offer writing support to all students. The principal aim of the Fellow's work is to foster good writing practice across disciplines and media. Each year Queen Mary hosts three Royal Literary Fund Fellows, who offer one-to-one writing tutorials to students and staff.
