Student Profile(s)

Alice Morgan

"Studying at Royal Holloway allowed me to experiment with my writing in a way I've never been able to before. I was encouraged to explore different styles, genres and themes and this enriched my writing immensely. Learning from experienced writers was one of the best things about my course. Not only were they able to help me with my writing but they were also able to advise on the publishing industry too. I made lifelong friends and I wish I could do it all again!"
