Meg Jensen is Deputy Head of School of Humanities, Director of the Centre for Life Narratives, and Principal Lecture in English Literature and Creative Writing at Kingston University. She lectures in 19th and 20th Century English and American Literature. She received her BA from Sarah Lawrence College in New York and her MA from New York University before coming to London to work on her PhD at University of London. She publishes both creative writing and literary criticism, and in all of her writing and research, her focus is upon writers' lives: what writers read, to whom writers talk, what writers think, and how writers write. She has recently completed her second novel.
