Facebook group for English Freshers

If you're joining the School of English at Birmingham City University next September, please join the Facebook Fresher's group we've set up for you! We hope that this will be a great resource for you to meet up online before we get to meet you in person in September.

I'm keeping a tally to see how fast we can get this group to grow, so the clock has started...

White Punks on Dope

Congratulations to our MA English Literary Studies student, David Ewer! Dave created a multi-media piece in preparation for his creative writing dissertation. The piece is called White Punks on Dope, and I won't spoil the story by telling it my words here, but let you view it for yourself on You Tube..

Dave's work was showcased at our recent and very successful National Academy of Writing event, along with work from the NAW students. Following on from this, he has now been appointed to teach on the Universitas 21 Summer School, where he will be teaching students how to make digital movies. I wish him every success!
