Dr Lisa Mansell

  • Job title: Senior Lecturer (Tef)
  • Department: School of Digital, Technologies and Arts


I studied English Literature (BA Hons) at Cardiff University and followed a program weighted towards Creative Writing, Critical and Cultural Theory (1999-2002). I stayed at Cardiff to complete an MA in the Teaching and Practice of Creative Writing (2003), then a PhD in Critical and Creative Writing (2007). My thesis was about hybrid creative-critical writing, oral and sonic traditions, and cross-cultural relationships to do with orality, most notably connections between African-American text and Welsh text.

I have substantial experience in facilitating community writing and have delivered workshops and reminiscence projects to senior citizens, lectured for the University of the Third Age [U3A] in addition to bringing Creative Writing into schools and to adult education. I have worked as a consultant for Kingston University (2008) to help develop the first online MFA in Creative Writing in the UK. I have worked at Staffordshire University since 2008 and hope to continue working with community groups though the Community Writer module, which is a part of the BA in Creative Writing.


I am a publishing poet working in the areas of linguistically/formally innovative poetics, digital poetries, and hybrid forms.
