Trying out new genres

I’ve been excited to try my hand at new writing genres in recent months. I’m enrolled on the MSt in Creative Writing at Oxford, and have written short story, stage drama, personal lyric essay and memoir so far.

I’m affiliated with Keble College, and can’t quite believe I get to wander about the grounds there! It is such a beautiful place. I didn’t know Oxford before at all, and have found it a studious, quiet, very walkable city with fantastic parks and museums. The libraries are awe-inspiring.   

The masterclasses there are exceptional and my cohort of writers are very inspirational. I’m sure I’ll bring all the skills I’m learning back to my poetry in different ways. I’m finding it extremely challenging, nourishing and inspiring.
