Celebrating MA Creative Writing student success

Gutter No. 17
Two current students on the MA Creative Writing programme at Edinburgh Napier University are celebrating fresh success in 2018.

First-year part-timer Noƫlle Harrison has a story in issue 17 of Gutter, one of Scotland's most acclaimed publishers of new writing. Vardo's Daughters is a chilling tale of treachery and lies set in the witch-fearing past of Norway. Gutter is now run by an independent cooperative after surviving a tumultuous 2017 in Scottish publishing.

Second-year part-timer Jenny Bloomfield is one of the creators contributing to WE SHALL FIGHT UNTIL WE WIN, a graphic novel marking a century since the first wave of women gained the right to vote in the UK.

The 64-page anthology by 404 Ink and BHP Comics is being created by celebrated writers and artists including Denise Mina, Hannah Berry, Durre Shahwar and Grace Wilson. A Kickstarter campaign seeking £8000 to help fund the project hit its target in just 15 days.
