It’s been quite a weekend.

On Friday afternoon, I received my MA results. And I’ve passed. With Distinction!!!!


I have loved studying creative writing so much. I’ve learnt tons, read some absolutely brilliant original fiction and met many wonderful, supportive and inspiring people.
Having the actual marks has been like adding extra delicious fudge icing to an already lush and chocolate filled cake. Or something (in case you haven’t guessed, I’m very happy)

And then, on Saturday, I ran my workshop at Lowdham Book Festival.


We had a full house and everyone who took part was wonderful. I was a bit nervous beforehand, but then there was a lovely moment when I looked around at all these writing people and I could almost feel the crackle of words flying about their heads. Thank you so much to everyone who came along.

And then, I was whisked away for a celebration involving cocktails and cabaret.

I’m still grinning.
