Student Profile(s)

Denica Shute

I chose Kent primarily because its module structure is extremely flexible, allowing me to write only prose and continue writing my novels throughout most modules. The same goes for poetry writers and for those who wish to write in both areas. Now that I'm further into the course I realise I'm very lucky to have been taught by some award winning novelists, and those who aren't award winning come with years of experience of writing and the industry. My favourite part of the course so far is the The Magazine module: you work in a team to produce a literary and creative writing magazine. The module is invaluable in that it shows just how a creative course like this can be applied in the work place and how much dedication and hard work it requires.
