The LiFTS department at the University of Essex incorporates the five subject areas of Literature, Film, Theatre Studies, Creative Writing and Journalism. This blog aims to introduce you to the department and provide more information on the work undertaken by both its students and staff.

Our bloggers are on hand to deliver the latest news from the department, share their views on the latest talking points and give you an insight on what it is like to be a LiFTS student. We are extremely proud of the creative work produced by our undergraduates and postgraduates (whether that be films, poetry, books or theatre to name just a few) and through this blog, we hope to bring you a small snapshot of their imagination! 

If you are interested in writing for the blog, please email liftstt@essex.ac.uk with the subject “LiFTS Blog”.
