Musings of the University of Dundee MLitt Publishing Writing students

What I did today at my placement

#FlashFictionFriday is live!

As promised in my last post – #FlashFictionFriday is here!

I have spent the day setting up and blogging about the first installment of this project.  Here is a link which will explain it:

#FlashFictionFriday is back!

Thanks must go to the ever-patient and helpful Hannah who has actually uploaded it to the website and done all the techy bits.

If you Tweet, please consider having a go at writing something.  Or encourage your friends to submit a piece – the more submissions the merrier.  If you don’t like the prompt, don’t worry – there’ll be another one along next week!

I also spent yesterday evening at the library, where I attended the launch of a visiting exhibition of the work of Ruth Barker and Hannah Leighton-Boyce.  The exhibition was accompanied by readings from Jackie Kay of three poems she has written, inspired by the exhibition.  This was not the first time I’ve been in an audience with Jackie and I am always struck by her personal warmth and ability to draw her audience in.  It was an inspiring evening.  The exhibition catalogue can be accessed here:

The new Glasgow Women’s Library Spring Programme was also launched yesterday and is packed with news of forthcoming activities, exhibitions and events, both in Glasgow and elsewhere in Scotland.
