People often assume that if you do a degree in Creative and Professional Writing you are going to write a novel. I may have had some mild aspirations of that nature in Year One, but with each new module my vision of the future morphed with new and exciting possibilities – “definitely going to write plays…actually I fancy screenwriting…no a radio writer…definitely”.  But conversations with a tutor around Life Writing and a visit to UCL took me down a completely different path. University can open up doors to experiences never imagined or expected.
