Two times two for Creative Writing students
Two students on the Department's MSt in Creative Writing programme signed two-book deals with publishers this Autumn.
Prajwal Parajuly, second-year student on the MSt, signed with publisher Quercas in October. The Gurkha's Daughter: Stories, and Land Where I Flee, a novel, will be published in December 2012 and 2013 respectively.
James Benmore, who completed the MSt programme in 2011, also signed a two book deal with publisher Heron (a subsidiary of Quercas) in October. His novel, Dodger, which tells the Oliver Twist story from the perspective of the Artful Dodger, will be published in 2012, with the book's sequel due out in 2014.
The MSt in Creative Writing is a two-year, part-time Master's degree course. It's structured as a series of retreats and residences, and attracts students from all over the world.
