The Post Graduate Open Day on 2nd September at the University of Gloucestershire is an opportunity to find out about the Post Graduate Creative Writing opportunities and to meet some of the teaching team. Iota Editor and Course Leader, Nigel McLoughlin, along with other teaching staff will be on hand throughout the event.
The range of Creative and Critical Writing courses offer the opportunity to develop writing and critical skills and to read widely. Further details about the Open Day, Creative and Critical Writing courses and the wider range of Postgraduate taught courses are available from the University of Gloucestershire website.
