Excellent news from the MA in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University.
The Arc Anthology looks like it’s going to be very exciting, with poetry from published poets James Davey, Daisy Behagg, Lucy Sixsmith and Hazel Hammond, and a consistently high calibre of fiction-writing as well, including many of my favourite bloggers among their number.
ARC is very excited to announce that Brian Kimberling, who graduated from the course in 2010, has just secured a six-figure publishing deal for his book, Snapper!
Brian started writing Snapper whilst on the Masters in Creative Writing at Bath Spa. It went on to win the Janklow & Nesbit Bath Spa Prize, the annual literary prize open to graduates of the course.
The rights were sold to Tim O’Connell of Pantheon last Friday as part of a six-figure, pre-emptive two-book deal. More details to be found here.
Well done Brian!
