The University of Glasgow
The University of Glasgow Creative Writing Programme, founded by Professors Philip Hobsbaum and Willy Maley in 1995, is fifteen years old and they are having a party to celebrate! I attended the programme 1998 – 2000 and the support that I received from Professor Maley, Professor Zoe Wicomb and others was instrumental in my development as a writer.
The Mitchell Library is hosting an exhibition devoted to the Creative Writing Programme. It includes books, manuscripts and photographs and will run from 1-29 November, 9am-8pm from Monday – Thursday and 9am-5pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
To mark the end of the exhibition there will be a party with readings at the Anatomy Museum and Theatre, University of Glasgow on 29 November at 5.30pm. All members of the programme, past and present, are invited to attend!
