We're organizing a celebration of writers associated with the Plymouth MA in Creative Writing: Tuesday 26 May 2009, 6-8pm, room 008 in the Roland Levinsky Building at the University of Plymouth. This will be a booked open mic event hosted by Plymouth staff. Opening the evening for us will be Ann Gray whose book At The Gate was recently published by the specialist poetry publisher Headland. Ann graduated from the programme three years ago. An award winning poet, she has been living and working in Cornwall and publishing poetry in journals internationally for some time.  
    Some of the current MA students will read from their work and our graduates are especially welcome to take part. Non-readers are equally welcome! Where appropriate, readers will be asked to say something about their writing career since graduating from Plymouth. We will have a book table where participants can show and sell their publications. 
    We would be glad to welcome any current Plymouth students or graduates who are interested in writing, and anyone in the region who would like to find out about the MA in Creative Writing at Plymouth.
    Last time we organized such an event we were over subscribed. So please contact if you would like to have a four-minute slot. There will be wine and soft drinks and time to just mingle.
