Last September I returned to University for the first time since gaining my degree in teaching twenty years ago. This time I was joining the MLitt course in Creative Writing at the University of Stirling, and to say I was excited would be a slight understatement.
The first year passed by far too quickly, and to mark the end of the year we were challenged with putting on an evening of live literature.
For me, the best thing about the evening was the warmth and appreciation we all showed for each other's writing. What a great way to end the year!
I've got a busy summer of writing projects ahead of me, but I can't wait to start all over again next September...
