After the success of London Lit Lab’s Continuing to Write course, Zoe and I realised the need among Creative Writing MA students to have continued support once they come to the end of their MA. Particularly as they often haven’t finished their novels, memoirs or short story collections. So we decided to set up a monthly facilitated workshop for MA alumni. It will be much like an MA workshop in that students will read and critique each others work, but with the added bonus of being self-facilitating in the long-term.
With the help of Birkbeck in London and BSU in Bath, we got in touch with the students who were about to graduate. Zoe’s London course filled up immediately, and I am currently recruiting for the Bristol/Bath course, as have recently moved into the area.
We’ll be offering a trial session of the MA alumni workshop on Thursday 9th November, at 6-8pm at Paintworks, Bath Road, BS4 3EH.
Places are limited, so please get in touch if you’re interested by Thursday October 5th. Please email, firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line of ‘Bristol MA alumni support’ to express your interest, and we’ll tell you more.
