Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


We are the University of Cambridge Centre for Creative Writing, based within the Institute of Continuing Education. We believe in the power of writing and reading to change lives and bring people together both locally and around the world.

We provide a home and meeting place for writers and readers in Cambridge and beyond. We offer lively events, courses and performances, and a place for retreats, reflection and inspiration. Collaboration and partnership are at the heart of what we do. If you'd like to join us in building this exciting new phase in the development of the centre, please do get in touch.
