How did the course support your steps into the industry?
As well as honing my skills as a writer, the MA was my platform to finding an agent and getting published.
Why did you choose the course you studied at Bath Spa?
Bath Spa offered the course I wanted to do and was close enough for me to commute.
"I am most proud of..."
...my first novel, Redferne Lane.
"The best thing about the course..."
Meeting fellow aspiring writers was definitely a highlight for me. And also having the opportunity to share my work with other students and professional writers.
"I'll always remember..."
The residential weekend when I met my fellow students.
"I recommend Bath Spa because..."
Corsham Court is a fabulous place to learn the craft of writing.
