News: Award win­ning writer Sophie Sparham inspires our Cre­ative Writ­ing students.

Sophie Sparham Workshop Group Pic

Our Cre­ative Writ­ing stu­dents have been inspired by award win­ning writer and poet Sophie Sparham, who joined them for an after­noon writ­ing work­shop where she shared her advice and top tips.

Under the guid­ance of Sophie, the group of first- and sec­ond-year stu­dents worked on sev­er­al tasks which includ­ed char­ac­ter cre­ation and poet­ry writ­ing, before com­ing togeth­er to share their work and ideas.

At Not­ting­ham Col­lege we’re indus­try focused and ded­i­cat­ed to help­ing you get where you want to be so you can open the doors to your future! Our cours­es help to inspire you to think about your future and start work­ing towards your goals right away and our ded­i­cat­ed team of tutors put our stu­dents at the heart of all that they do. 

It has been a plea­sure hav­ing Sophie lead a poet­ry ses­sion with our L3 Cre­ative Writ­ing stu­dents. Sophie’s writ­ing is orig­i­nal, and the themes explored are cur­rent and unique. I know the stu­dents will gain a lot from her vis­it and the writ­ing tasks deliv­ered. I hope that they are as inspired as I am by her poet­ry and vibrant character.’ 

 — Alan­nah Inger, Cre­ative Writ­ing Course Leader.

First year student Aaliyah Dyer told us the workshop has improved her confidence.

The work­shop Sophie deliv­ered has inspired our stu­dents, who left feel­ing more con­fi­dent about their work and embraced the oppor­tu­ni­ty to meet a suc­cess­ful writer. Here’s what some of them had to say:

I found today real­ly excit­ing. It was great to meet some­one who made it as a writer and Sophie has made me feel more con­fi­dent about writ­ing.”

- Aaliyah Dyer, First Year Cre­ative Writ­ing student.

Today has been great! Meet­ing Sophie has been a bril­liant expe­ri­ence. I had nev­er writ­ten poet­ry before so learn­ing the process was tru­ly a delight.” 

 — - Tay­lor Lowe, Sec­ond year Cre­ative Writ­ing for Media.

I’ve loved every sec­ond of the work­shop. It was amaz­ing to meet Sophie and get a chance to talk to some­one who has made it as a poet. It has giv­en me new hope for my future as I love writ­ing and poet­ry myself and it’s some­thing I’d love to do for a living. 

 — - Megz Wor­ton, Year 1 Cre­ative Writ­ing for the Media student.
