English, American Studies & Creative Writing
Careers event: Weds 13th March, 4.30 – 6.00pm
A7 Samuel Alexander Building
Thinking about your career? Wondering what to do once you’ve graduated? Here’s an opportunity to come and hear former students from our department talk about the uses they have made of a degree from the department of English, American Studies and Creative Writing.
We have arranged for a panel of former students, from a variety of occupations (including media, journalism, writing, accountancy and local government) and at different stages in their career, to come and talk to you about their experiences and the ways in which their degree has helped them in their chosen career. There will also be a chance for you to ask them questions. Confirmed speakers include:
· Phoebe Myers BA (Hons) English and American Literature 1990 - "I am a Divisional Accountant working in the NHS for Stockport Foundation Trust three days a week. I am studying for an MA in Visual Culture one day a week, and I do various other things on my fifth day – currently GSET Tutor on Interactive Arts degree course at MMU."
· Dan Poole: BA (Hons) English and American Studies 2003 - "I’m at Monocle magazine (www.monocle.com), where my title is sub editor & writer. As you might guess my roles are sub-editing and writing for the magazine, as well as acting as editorial manager for the advertorials that appear in the mag."
· Mark Piggott, MA Creative Writing 2006 – "I’m an author and journalist. As an author I write contemporary fiction, including novels and short stories.
