Edinburgh Napier Creative Writing course plans ‘Open Doors’ event

The Creative Writing MA at Edinburgh Napier University has been called ‘a radical departure’ by The Times newspaper, and ‘a life changing experience’ by recent students.

On Wednesday 27th June, there’s a chance to discover how the course could help you make writing your career with an Open Doors Event at the University. It features taster sessions that give you a flavour of the course’s unique approach and you’ll have the chance to quiz current students about their experiences, tour the creative writing suite, and ask the staff anything you want to know.

This event also offers the exclusive opportunity for a one-to-one consultation with reader-in-residence Stuart Kelly, and finishes with a special performance by writer-in-residence Robert Shearman (writer of the Doctor Who episode ‘Dalek’, among other things).

– You can order your ticket(s) here and there’s a full itinerary which includes a talk by former 2000AD editor David Bishop, here
