Teaching Creative Writing - Will Eaves & Tiffany Murray
Morrab Library, Morrab Gardens, Penzance, TR18 4DA
Date: Wednesday 25th July 2012
Will Eaves and Tiffany Murray, both of whom are university teachers of creative writing and both well-known novelists, discuss their teaching methods and how they manage to teach and undertake research while themselves continuing to write.
Will Eaves was born in Bath in 1967. He is the author of three novels, The Oversight (2001, shortlisted for the Whitbread First Novel Award), Nothing To be Afraid Of (2005) and This Is Paradise (2012), as well as a collection of poems, Sound Houses (2011).
For many years he was the Arts Editor of the Times Literary Supplement. He now teaches in the Department of English at the University of Warwick, where he is Associate Professor on the Writing Programme.
Tiffany Murray’s novels Diamond Star Halo (Portobello 2010) and Happy Accidents (Harper Perennial 2005) were shortlisted for the Bolinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize. The Guardian called her ‘the glam rock Dodie Smith’ and selected Diamond Star Halo as their pick of 2010 Fiction. Tiffany studied at New York University and The University of East Anglia, where she gained her doctorate.
She is Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at The University of Glamorgan and currently Hay Festival's International Writing Fellow.
The chair will be taken by Peter Levin, ex-LSE and author of Write Great Essays (2nd edn, Open University Press, 2009).
