Postgraduate Creative Writing Menu
I completed my BA English Studies and went straight onto the MA Creative Writing (Novel), both at MMU. Taking two years out, I set up a writing partnership and facilitated and project-managed workshops and projects throughout Greater Manchester with various schools and community groups. Collaborating with my writing partner, I had a short play performed at the West Yorkshire Playhouse and wrote a play for the opening of the Blue Box Theatre in Manchester.
I began my PhD in Creative Writing at Lancaster in January 2006 and have undertaken a novel that spans from the 30's and pre-independence Nigeria to current-day Manchester. This research has taken me from the National Archive in London to the Labour History Museum in Manchester; it includes oral accounts from Nigerian women who settled in Manchester in the '50's and '60's and those of family members who live in Sapele, Nigeria. The novel explores memory and consciousness and the effect of migration on second and third generations. Graham Mort is my supervisor.
