Creative writing


Open to both Creative Writing students, and other students at the university, we aim to create a society which encourages creative freedom, while integrating students of different years and courses into the madness that is Creative Writing.
We're aiming to cater to both the academic side of the subject, with our own writing workshops, available to all, as well as the social side, with open readings, quiz nights, workshops, and magazine launch parties. We want to give everyone an opportunity to get to know one another and share work in a more informal setting.

Our society also includes the university's first ever Creative Writing magazine, Show Don't Tell, where we encourage submissions from all years and courses including articles, creative prose, poetry, and script work.

Please join our Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/820735761293917/to keep up to date with all our events and submission calls for the magazine! You can also follow us on twitter too - https://twitter.com/uogshowdonttell 

Also, we know how much ink and paper writers burn through and that there is a constant need for stationery (or an addiction to it!). Sometimes this gets expensive. You can buy loads of stationery and office supplies in bulk from Viking - an awesome website with plenty of discounts:https://www.viking-direct.co.uk/en/


Feel free to ask any and all questions.

We look forward to meeting you! :)
