Every year the UK’s longest-running Creative Writing MA Prose Fiction programme draws together an eclectic mix of writers from across the globe. They tread in the footsteps of some well-established names, most notably the recipient of last year’s Nobel Prize in Literature, Kazuo Ishiguro, as well as Booker Prize for Fiction winners Ian McEwan and Anne Enright, but also more recent successful graduates: Naomi Alderman, Ayobami Adebayo, and Emma Healey.
To be a student on UEA’s prestigious Prose Fiction MA isn’t merely an invitation to stand on the shoulders of giants; it is a rare opportunity to be part of a vibrant community of writers who both support and challenge each other to produce imaginative, thrilling and ambitious work. This year’s anthology showcases the enormous talent of the cohort and gives a tantalising glimpse into the early work of writers that are sure to become household names in the future.
