Please join us for the new season of the Kingston Writing School Reading and Lecture Series as we welcome Kingston University's own Dr James Miller, fiction author and students from Kingston's Creative Writing MFA as they showcase their latest work in a series of readings.
Dr James Miller is the CW MFA Course Director at Kingston University. He is the author of the acclaimed novels Lost Boys (Little, Brown, 2008) Sunshine State (Little, Brown 2010) and the forthcoming UnAmerican Activities (Dodo Ink 2017).
He will be joined by the following students:
Alison Miller: after a successful twenty-two-year commercial career, Alison escaped the corporate coil to do what she loves the most - telling stories to engage and entertain.
Lisa Samloglou: Lisa has published a collection of short stories and novellas The City with the Bachelors (Ellinika Grammata, Athens 2005). A graduate of Essex University with an MA in Literary Translation in 1985, she made her living in marketing; occasionally she translated prose published in Greece. Since 2015 she follows the MFA Creative Writing Program at Kingston University. In her blog on cultural travel Urban Travel Tales she introduces herself: ''my story is one of an ardent reader who became a writer; of a nomad at heart who has become a traveller collecting photos and inventing narratives.'
Sophia Yamamoto: Sophia has been published in Live Life: A Daydreamer's Journal, in A Thorn of Death, and in Words, Pauses, Noises. While she loves short stories, she is currently working on a fantasy/horror novel and a creative non-fiction piece revolving around her grandparents and World War II.
Julia Hendricks: from performance poetry to night classes at the City Lit, Julia has taken the scenic route to getting words on the page. Completing the MFA at Kingston represents her commitment to fulfilling her dream of becoming a 'real' writer.
Ruth Day: Ruth is co-editor of the Words, Pauses, Noises blog.
Refreshments will be served from 6.30pm and the lecture will begin at 7.00pm. All are welcome.
