Anthology Launch & 2016 UoG Novel Writing Contest Winners Announced!

16 Dec

On Tuesday the course celebrated the launch of this year’s paperback anthology of student work, Reflections: New Writing 5.  Attendees were treated to readings from contributors on campus, which was followed by an after-party at Tailor’s bar in town.  Excitingly, at the event the winners for this year’s UoG Novel Writing Contest were also announced.  3rd prize went to Mark Webber for his Mafioso crime novel, Mamma; 2nd prize went to Pamela Keevil for her drama-mystery, Mayflies; and the overall winner was Senja Andrejevic for her thriller, All The Things We Knew.  Each winner received a cash prize and professional critique from literary agent Becky Thomas, of Johnson and Alcock.  Thanks to all who came out to support such a great night, as well as all those who submitted work to the anthology and the novel writing contest.  Have a good break, and we’ll see you in the New Year!

48 Hours Until Reflections Submission Window Closes!

16 Mar

Calling Team UoG!  Reflections: New Writing V submissions window closes at midnight on Friday March 18th.  The submissions are pouring in now, and the editors are anticipating the final avalanche of quality work from UoG students.  If you’ve been taking out commas and putting them back again (as Oscar Wilde would say), then you’ll have to take a deep breath and let go of your masterpiece.  If you’re still struggling for inspiration, it’s time to shatter that writer’s block and have your breakthrough epiphany (if only epiphanies could be bought, borrowed, or stolen).  Either way, remember to follow the guidelines and ensure you meet that deadline.  The main thing is to get something in: we’re looking forward to reading your work and discovering what the course has produced this year.
