Our MA Creative Writing students on the BBC

Students at Edinburgh Napier's MA Creative Writing course appeared on the BBC TV show Politics Scotland today [April 1st], taking part in a unique experiment. Historians have discovered that a spring said to grant enhanced creative abilities is piped into one particular area of the Scottish capital.

Bruntsfield and Morningside - also known by the postcode EH10 - are home to several international bestselling authors including Ian Rankin, Alexander McCall Smith and [until a few years ago] JK Rowling. The area is also home to the Craighouse campus where our Creative Writing MA is based.

Eight students and programme leader Sam Kelly were filmed for the experiment. If you're based in the UK, you can watch the results for the next week by clicking this link. Unfortunately, the clip isn't viewable from outside the UK, and will go offline in seven days. In the meantime, enjoy!
