TAKING ON A MASTER'S

 

I must be the only person I know who decided to go back to uni and do a Masters, because that’s what my friends were doing. I do have more than three friends, but the course came up, Shirley, Yvonne and Cameron were gearing up to enrol, and I thought, ‘Why not?’

 

Also, I’d been working on a novel for some years, and needed a huge push to get back into writing. And that’s what I got. Work had to be presented for assessment, so I wrote and wrote and honed and honed, and my writing grew and developed.

 

Under the guidance of the lovely Rohan Wilson, we learnt a great deal about shaping our work, and began developing and refining the many skills needed to produce a well-written novel.

 

I was very proud to graduate from UTAS in August, 2013, with my MA in Creative Writing. Now the challenge is to continue working, to finish the novel. Luckily, a number of us are already meeting regularly to support each other in doing just that.
