Creel 3 – Book Launch

Creel 3‘ Launch

5pm Saturday 9th September

Wivenhoe Bookshop

A Wivenhoe ArtSea Festival event

Join us to raise a glass to Creel 3, the third anthology of short stories, nature writing and poems by postgraduate students from the Department of Literature, Film and Theatre studies at the University of Essex.

The book is published by Wivenbooks, the Wivenhoe Bookshop’s imprint, and has been beautifully designed by John Wallett. The event will include readings by the contributors.

The Centre for Creative Writing has a strong tradition of teaching that emphasizes innovation and experimentation. They are passionate about encouraging our students to write and create in fresh and exciting directions – discovering their unique voices and producing original works that will inspire and invigorate the field of literature.

From the views atop high rocky peaks, to the observation of turmoil deep in the human spirit, these works, based on the theme of ‘elements’, showcase the variety of writing that students are creating at Essex.

Creel 3 is introduced by Dr Adrian May,  and the pieces selected by Matthew de Abaitua, Dr James Canton and Dr Holly Pester. The editors are Danielle Bell, Lelia Ferro, Molly Shrimpton and Marieke Sjerps.
