15:15-16:30 - A Workshop in Creative Writing for Confidence and Enjoyment
Where: Online via Zoom
Writing is one of the ways to gain distance or perspective on stressful subjects whether they directly impact the writer alone or are concerns shared by others. And in times of crisis such as climate change or pandemic, matters that cause anxiety to whole communities also affect each individual in personal ways. We will draw inspiration from samples of contemporary fiction and poetry, to find fresh ideas for telling stories of your own.
Organiser: Study councellor, Department of English
16:15-18:00 - Workshop: How to finish your essay or degree project
Tips and advice on how to finish your essay or degree project. An opportunity to discuss your draft individually with a tutor from the Language Workshop.
Organiser: The Language Workshop
