MA programme invades Wigtown Book Festival

Edinburgh Napier's MA Creative Writing programme is making its presence felt at the fabled Wigtown Book Festival and its offshoots this week. Current student Anni Telford [above] is reading and discussing her work from 1.30pm on Wednesday, October 2nd at Reading Lasses:

It's Crime Time (Anni Telford): What makes good people do bad things? After 30 years as a psychotherapist working with paedophiles, rapists and violent criminals, Anni Telford puts that experience to good use in her crime fiction. She will discuss her psychotherapy career and how it has inspired a collection of crime short stories.

Tutor David Bishop was in Wigtown on Sunday to run a packed workshop on creating comics, part of Wigtown The Festival. The MA Creative Writing programme's reader in residence Stuart Kelly is chairing events at Wigtown almost every day, while writer in residence Ken MacLeod is at Wigtown this Saturday [Oct 5th] to discuss his work.
