Welcome Back – 1st Masterclass of the Semester
17 January 2018: 6.10pm City Campus Norfolk 210
Andrew Jeffrey and Harriet Tarlo:
CREATIVE WRITING INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE ACADEMY
Andrew is midway through his Creative Writing PhD at Hallam. Harriet is his main supervisor. In this twofold presentation they discuss the joys and perils of the PhD process and working with people and places outside the university, a key element in both of their research/writing processes. They will touch on the “impact agenda” by which universities encourage such work but how this also leads to further issues that need to be considered when working on landscape and in communities. Come along if you are thinking you might take Creative Writing further, by registering for a Ph.D. and/or you are interested in working with local people or in places in the future.
Andrew Jeffrey is midway through a PhD in Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam by writing about his encounters with various creatures in The Moss Valley on the Sheffield/Derbyshire border. His PhD is a hybrid of poetry, journal and literary criticism. He completed the MA Writing with distinction at Hallam in 2013 and currently teaches on a variety of literature and creative writing modules. His recent poems have appeared in Plumwood Mountain Review, Route 57 and Green Letters and he reviews books for The North, The Poetry School and The Goose. His blog is: cowyidentity.wordpress.com
