Read about our PhD Creative Writing graduates and the projects they undertook
The International Institute of Modern Letters (IIML) launched New Zealand's first PhD creative writing programme in 2008. Our first PhD graduate, Marian Evans, was capped in May 2010.
Graduate profiles are presented here for historical interest and to give a sense of the diversity of projects undertaken by members of our PhD Creative Writing cohort. We imagine they will also be of interest to those considering applying for the programme in the future.
The descriptions below reflect the students' thinking either during their candidature or shortly after their PhD was awarded. As such, they should not be read as a final or definitive account of the project undertaken. We hope the web links included will provide more up to date information about each of them.
