Student Profile(s)

Guin Glasford-Brown

Taking the MA Creative Writing at Anglia Ruskin University is, without doubt, one of the best decisions I have made in recent years.

The MA has been pivotal to my development as an early career writer. It has provided me with a core set of skills on which to build and feedback to enable me to refine my work, to find its hard, bright edge. One of the most valuable aspects of the course has been the opportunity for me to develop my interest in art and writing. I am now writing a series of stories that explore the work of British artist, Julian Opie.

I failed English Literature at school and I don't have a literary background, so putting my work 'out there' alongside published writers was extremely daunting. I want to thank the students I work with, because I have had great support from them, and the teaching staff on the MA who have shown me tremendous encouragement. I am thrilled to have won this award and for my work to be recognised in this way.*

(* Guin won first prize in the National Galleries of Scotland prize for a story she wrote that responds to a painting, 'Imagine You Are Driving', in the gallery. The competition is co-sponsored by the Scottish Poetry Library and English Speaking Union and The Scotsman. Guin's story will be published in The Scotsman and in a collection of winning work later next year. )
