Writing students have been honing their skills at the 2017 Penzance Literary Festival.
Students from English and Creative Writing courses volunteered at the festival, which took place from 5 to 8 July; interviewing writers, blogging, and producing press releases. They also saw one of their own, Gee Middleton, a graduating third year student named as one of five emerging talents highlighted in the Festival's Five Young Poets event.
Danielle Barrios-O'Neill, Senior Lecturer in English & Publishing, said: "This provided a great opportunity for our students to be involved in the behind-the-scenes workings of a literary festival. As well as producing promotional material the students managed to get the festival coverage in several local media outlets."
