A new collection of work from 16 writers will be launched this
All the writers studied Creative Nonfiction as part of the
University of Hull’s MA in Creative Writing.
Grow up in Barton. Take to sea as a woman in a tough crew. Scan
the Humber on suicide watch. Be fitted for a ballgown by Madame
Clapham. Experience all the fun of Hull Fair. Put out fires, tread
Medieval landscapes, shop at ‘Boyes’, hunt ghosts through the
Paragon Station, chase down birds at Spurn Point… These writers
bring you brilliant flavours of life in and around Hull, in their
own distinctive voices.
The book is published by Barbican Press and edited with an
introduction by Martin Goodman, Professor of Creative Writing,
University of Hull.
Prof Goodman said: “This is your opportunity to discover – and
hopefully promote - some truly striking new writing talent from the
region. And while you’re doing that, you’ll start seeing Hull
through new eyes.”
‘Writing Hull: True-life tales from 16 writers’ will be launched
at a joint event alongside ‘Huddled Together: 50 years of Hull
University Drama Department’ on Thursday 28 February in Middleton
Hall, Hull Campus.
