Kingston University MFA Anthology, Writings, launches!

Last night saw the 2013 Kingston University Creative Writing MFA anthology, Writings, launch to a packed house. With readings from eight MFA contributors, the evening was a great success. Many thanks to the staff of the Waggon and Horses for the great service and for providing a lovely venue for our event. If you were not able to attend but would still like a copy of Writings please let us know; there are a few copies left. Copies will also be added to the permanent collection at the Kingston University library, so you can check us out there!

Writings 2013

Thank you to everyone who made Writings possible this year especially: all our talented contributors who gave their time and writing; all the lecturers, tutors and writers-in-residence who worked with the MFAs over the past few years and are too numerous to list individually; Rachel Cusk, who wrote our introduction; David Rogers and everyone at Kingston Writing School for funding the project; Laura Bottomley for making sure everything ran smoothly; Alison Gibb for her advice on how to get the project started; Ryan Licata and Sinead Keegan for compiling the submissions and artwork and laying out the book; Hannes Pasqualini for the amazing artwork and cover design; Anna Jannepalli and David Wood at the Kingston University Print room for the design and printing; everyone who came out to the launch and provided support during long weeks and months of writing; and, of course, our fearless and inspiring leader, Scott Bradfield, who was the driving force behind the MFA these last few years and made this publication possible.

Happy writing!

    Hi guys,

    Congratulations on this great publication, and special thanks to Ryan and Sinead for all their hard work carrying it forward – and to all of you for your contributions and dedication this year.

    I was really sorry to miss the reading but I had teaching in London last night that I couldn’t get out of.

    Keep in touch! Write every day! Don’t take any wooden nickels (except from me!) Eat five portions of fresh fruit and veg every day! More soon!

    Scott
