As part of her studies in MA Creative Writing, Elizabeth Eaton worked as writer in residence at a primary school, going on to edit an anthology of stories written by children to raise money for Samara’s Aid which works with Syrian refugees.
Elizabeth worked with pupils at Woodingdean Primary School to create an anthology called Children’s Stories Written by Children. All money raised from the fete and from book sales is going to the charity Samara’s Aid Appeal which is a charity which works with Syrian Reguees.
Says Year 3 pupil Harley: “So, I’m writing a story about animals who loose their home and have to move away to find another home and this is helping children in Syria who lost their home and are coming here to have a new home.”
About her time on the Creative Writing MA, Elizabeth says:
“My time studying at Brighton has been a life-turning experience. Before starting my Masters in Creative Writing, I felt unsure about what I wanted to do next, I knew I loved writing but I didn’t know what I wanted to write or what my voice was.
