Date/Time: 05 October 2017 13.00

Venue: King Edward VII, room 2.01, Newcastle University

John, Jo and Mike are alumni of the MA in Creative Writing, Newcastle University. John Maguire worked first in the chemical industry, then as a university lecturer. On retirement, a fortunate encounter with a night-school writing group led to the MA. Jo Reed has published two collections of poetry with Valley Press, and her recent work, Becoming Faiake, will be published by Red Squirrel Press this autumn. Mike Tickell worked in Wark Forest, then the Horse Guards, before settling on a career in education. His life-long interest in the poems, songs and ballads of Northumberland led to the MA.
