My Tutor, Jo Shapcott, Wins the Costa Book of the Year!
Jo Shapcott is currently teaching our workshop group on the Creative Writing MA. I was thrilled to hear her poetry collection, Of Mutability, won the Costa book of the year. I even saw her on BBC Breakfast this morning. She excepted the award with humility, and 'on behalf of the genre of poetry'. The total prize money for the award was £35,000 - ah, what a dream! We plan to celebrate with cake in our next workshop :)
