The creative writing course at the UEA in Norfolk has produced some of the country's best writers - Ian McEwan, Rose Tremain, Tracey Chevalier and more recently Emma Healey.
Well now, a stand-up poet ,Tim Clare, is the latest graduate from there to get his book published.
It's officially out today and what's more he was inspired by the north Norfolk coastline.
"What I do is work with words and I try and tell stories and it's the same thing whether you're singing a song, whether you're telling people an anecdote on stage or whether you're writing a book so I don't see them actually as being that different."
ITV News Anglia's Natalie Gray went along to meet Tim Clare. Click below to watch her report.
