Featured Alumni Profile
I chose to study here because I was living in Glasgow already, and the MLitt in Creative Writing at Glasgow University had an outstanding reputation. I wanted to become a writer and editor, so the MLitt in creative writing was the ideal qualification for the career I wanted. I really enjoyed being part of a community of writers, which included both the other students on the course and the tutors.
I have gone on to become an editor, a publisher, and to teach creative writing for Strathclyde University, Glasgow University (DACE) and SUISS at Edinburgh University. My creative writing also improved over my year on the MLitt, and I have been published in journals, magazines and anthologies including Gutter, Spilling Ink, Litro, The List, and been broadcast on BBC Radio 4. I won a Scottish Book Trust New Writers’ Award in 2012.
