What does it take to be a writer? It takes talent! It takes passion! It takes University of Glasgow Masters Students!

In partnership with Glasgow University Writing Masters Programme, the Scottish Writers Centre will be showcasing students work. Hosted by SWC, Director Derek Parkes join us for an open night where student writers lift the cover on writing, their perspectives on how to break into the competitive world of writing, and give insights into the Creative Writing Programme at the University of Glasgow. This is your opportunity to hear students’ accomplishments and learn more about the programme! Please join us!

Derek Parkes: Born in London, Derek Parkes moved to Glasgow in 2003. Previously a writer of short stories, Derek joined Donny O’Rourke’s creative writing class in 2010 and discovered a previously unknown penchant for poetry. Derek has since been ‘highly recommended’ in the Stirling off the Stanza poetry competition (2011), and published in a variety of anthologies and online. A regular reader at poetry events around Glasgow, Derek is one of the organisers of Poetry at the Ivory on the South Side of the city.
