It's been a great year on the MA in Creative Writing at the University of Leicester. Students are now in the middle of their final Dissertations, which are handed in at the end of September. So it seems like a good time to celebrate the publishing successes students have had during their course. Here below is an incomplete list of some of the publications by students on the MA in Creative Writing, 2019. I've linked as many of the pieces as possible, so there's lots of wonderful writing to read and enjoy.
