With the sunlight streaming in through the windows, Pandora’s Box 2017, featuring some of the best creative writing by students and staff, was launched in front of a live audience. The evening was brilliantly organised by the three student editors Cal Buckley, Jonathan Hay, and Liz Milne.
This year, thanks to an award from the NSS (National Student Survey), we were able to announce well-deserved prizes in the form of book tokens to students from the Department of English.
The winners are as follows:
Pandora’s Box Poetry Competition
First Prize: £150 to Courtney Thomas for ‘Little Tucker’
