If you like meeting in real life, this information night and meet-up is a brilliant way of bringing graduates and prospective students together for an informal catch up. More than just a chat about apostrophes and rejection letters, these meet-ups put faces to names, names to genres and can even lead to fantastic collaborations.
We also welcome anyone who is interested in seeing what this whole writing nonsense is all about!
