What our graduates say

Check out what our graduates have gone on to do and how studying at Kingston helped them achieve their goals.

Name: Sarah Rees Brennan
Course: Creative Writing MA

"I chose to study at Kingston because unlike many writing courses, it allowed space for both fantasy and children's novels. I especially loved my Children's Literature class with Louisa Sladen. Another standout was my dissertation tutor, Liz Jensen, who gave me remarkably good and detailed feedback, and the lovely people in my writing workshops. I'm really glad I came to Kingston.

"Once I finished my master's I returned to my home country, Ireland, where I write and live by the water. I started writing a fantasy novel for young adults, titled 'The Demon's Lexicon', whilst at Kingston which has since been signed by Simon & Schuster. It was actually on the advice of one of my tutors there that I rewrote the first chapter!

"The book is set in modern-day London, where a 16 year old boy has to deal with killer ravens, amorous succubi, his complicated relationship with his brother and the consequences of his mother's affair with an evil magician..."

The Demon's Lexicon was the first in the 'Demon's Trilogy'; it was succeeded by The Demon's Covenant and The Demon's Surrender.
