University of Glasgow; Full Day Symposium celebrating Creative Writing

creative writing spring symposium

Thursday, 22 April 2021 11 a.m. –4 p.m.

A full-day symposium to celebrate the past, present and future of Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow

About this Event

Creative Writing at University of Glasgow is applying to become the Centre for Writing and Creative Practice. This Centre will consolidate its cross-disciplinary portfolio of research collaborations, knowledge exchange projects, and teaching practices. Research and knowledge exchange activities already feature a wide range of distinguished writers and creative practitioners, and the creation of the Centre will amplify these world-reaching events and networks. It will provide a platform from which to build and serve as a world-leading Centre for outstanding research, teaching, and knowledge exchange in writing and creative practice. This will include supporting the development of new courses, programmes and projects.

With this in mind, the symposium will celebrate the current position  – with speakers pulled from a wide network of writers, writer-researcher academic colleagues and an open call to PGR students to contribute – and to hold discussions that can help shape the Centre moving forward.

This symposium will also feature a keynote from acclaimed British writer, poet and artist Malika Booker.

Full program to be released soon.
