From Glasgow To Saturn Reading Party
Thursday 13th Sept. 6.30pm
Anatomy Museum, University of Glasgow
To mark the start of the 2012/13 Creative Writing MLitt year, the university’s literary magazine From Glasgow To Saturn is hosting a reading party with some of the best current and emerging talent in the country – and they’ve all played their part in the celebrated MLitt programme.
Hosted in the university’s fantastical Anatomy Museum the free event is open to all. Readers featuring on the night include:
Scottish writer Karen Campbell is the author of five novels: The Twilight Time, After the Fire, Shadowplay and Proof of Life – all Hodder & Stoughton. Karen’s new novel This is Where I Am is published by Bloomsbury Circus in February 2013.
A graduate of Glasgow University’s Creative Writing MLitt, Karen also teaches creative writing and carries out freelance communications training.
Elizabeth is a teacher of Glasgow Creative Writing MLitt and is also an extensively published writer of fiction, lyrical essays and poems. Her critically acclaimed debut novel Ramshackle was published in 2012 by Freight and the follow up Fremont will be published later this year by Kohl Publishing.
Elaine is currently a student on the university’s MFA Programme. Her work was recently performed at the inaugural Outside Thoughts literature event in Glasgow.
James is entering the second year of the part-time MLitt course. His work has been published in a number of magazine and journals, including From Glasgow To Saturn.
…and there’s more to be unveiled.
There will also be a music performed by Jonathan Henderson.
And as if that’s not enough, there will be plenty of wine, cake and nibbles to enjoy during our networking break.
After party at The Loft on Ashton Lane from 8pm
