Happy Birthday!

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.

I’ll be reading with Rachel Seiffert on Saturday 6th November and on Friday 5th you can hear readings from Karen Campbell, Jason Donald and Anne Donovan.

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!
