Dodgson tunes into Visiting Writer Series

Released: 19.11.14

Paul Dodgson is the next special guest of the successful Visiting Writer Series at the University of St Mark & St John.

Following the broadcast of his 14th play on BBC Radio 4, Dodgson will discuss how radio drama is written, what happens in the studio and whether the old cliché is true: “Pictures are better on the radio”.

Next week’s free talk takes place in the University Library Lecture Theatre on Tuesday starting at 6.30pm.

October’s visiting writer at the University was Monique Roffey, whose fifth novel “House of Ashes” has just been short-listed for the Costa Prize for best novel of 2014.

Creative Writing students at the University enjoyed last month’s insightful talk by Roffey, focusing on ways to refine their writing.

The Visiting Writer series has been running for several years at the University of St Mark and St John.

Presentations are open to all and admission is free.

To reserve a seat for next Tuesday’s talk please telephone Plymouth (01752) 636700 extension 6522.
