Read about our PhD graduates and the projects they undertook with us.
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 alphabetically 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.
Information about our current PhD candidates and their projects can be found on our PhD Profiles page.You can also read about some of our MA graduates on our MA Graduate Showcase page
