Prize-winning writing flourishes at London Met

This year's Creative Writing Competition has led to the publication of an exciting anthology, with prizes awarded to talented student writers.

Students, staff and guests celebrated London Met's finest writing talent at the launch of Just Met 2015, an anthology of stories and poems. The launch event on 12 November featured readings from the anthology, with prizes awarded for the most exceptional work. Head of School of Media, Culture and Communications Martin Murray presented prizes to poets Abida Choudhury, Hafsa Mohamud, and Molly Rivkin, and to prose writers Emily Critchley and Dominique Sinagra. Dominique, a second-year student of the BA in Creative Writing, also won the Vice Chancellor's Prize as overall competition winner. 

School of Social Sciences, Dean Elizabeth Charman, who opened the event, said she was very impressed with the high standard of work in the anthology. Creative Writing tutor Sarah Law agreed: "This anthology showcases the immense talent of our student writers. It's one of our best publications to date. All of the students published here have the potential to go on to further writing success. I'll be watching their journeys with interest."
