“What I love most about Manchester is the people; they made this new city feel like my home.”
Why do you think American students should come to the Manchester Writing School?

You get a real hands-on education. The classes are taught in small groups, so you’ll be sitting at the table with published and celebrated authors helping you nurture your talent.

 

Have you taken part in any extracurricular activities or projects alongside your studies? How has this complimented your time at Manchester Writing School?

During my time at the Manchester Writing School I produced articles for Manchester Metropolitan’s arts and culture student magazine, aHh! Magazine, participated in National Novel Writing Month, and was involved in the Notes into Letters project, a partnership project between the Manchester Writing School and the Royal Philharmonic Society that explored the use of classical music as a source of writing inspiration.

What was the biggest adjustment for you coming to study and live in the UK?

I think the biggest adjustment for me was leaving my family. It was hard the first few months, but my classmates, along with a few nights at the pub, made me feel at home.

In one sentence, please describe what you love most about Manchester and the UK:

What I love most about Manchester is the people; they made this new city feel like my home.
