The Creative Writing team at Edge Hill continues to expand. Staff members starting during this term are Claire Dean, Lecturer in Fiction, and Andrea Ashworth, our new Fiction GTA. Welcome to both members of the team. Claire has written of how she is ‘thrilled to be joining the Creative Writing team. I completed my MA here and found the university and the tutors’ approach to teaching and learning inspirational, so it’s brilliant to be back. I’m excited about working with students to develop their writing and understanding of the many ways we can be writers in the world.’
