Dr. Rowan Middleton

Lecturer in English Literature and Creative Writing

English and Creative Writing

I love the way in which literature and creative writing allows us to explore ourselves and the world around us.

Biography

I love the ways in which literature and creative writing allow us to explore ourselves and the world around us. I’m particularly fascinated by the relationship between poetry and the environment. This interest has grown out of my enthusiasm for literature in general and my love of the outdoors. In the classroom, I particularly enjoy it when discussion and debate lead to new insights on a text.
