To celebrate the end of the term and the upcoming Christmas break, students from the Playwriting module for the Creative and Professional writing course took a trip to Canterbury’s Marlowe Theatre to see the new play … If We’ve Never Been To The Moon?
Student Leah Hockley (English Literature with Creative and Professional Writing) talks about her immersive play “First of the Feathers” on the Being Human Festival blog.
I was nine when I first realised I wanted to be a writer. I distinctly remember receiving a Jacqueline Wilson Write-Your-Own-Novel kit for my birthday, and spent weeks writing a fantastical story about an all-girls Chelsea Football Club. Not my best work.
A crackling fire. A glass of something warming. And a good fright. It’s what Christmas is all about, no?
Calling all would-be creative writers, art critics and journalists!
Last week I learned that it’s really complicated driving to Greece with a van, the best cheesy chips in Canterbury are from a kebab shop, veterinary staff often cry about poorly animals, and that us Southerners pronounce most things incorrectly. I found these out because our second year Creative and Professional Writing students have published the latest edition of Clippings magazine – an online publication with Medium.com.
