Here at York St John, our approach to Literature is simple: words matter. Words shape the world we live in—books can and have changed the world—and the connections between the written page and the concerns of the ‘real’ world are a crucial part of our work. Our blog celebrates this philosophy.

This blog is edited by Dr Janine Bradbury and Dr Saffron Vickers Walkling and features contributions from York St John students and staff.
