About this event

The first ever national Student Wordsmith Awards Night (or SWANs) will be held on Saturday 16th April 2016! This event represents a fantastic opportunity to meet and network with contributors to The Student Wordsmith and other individuals from the creative sector.

Everyone who has successfully submitted their work and had it published (in print or online) by The Student Wordsmith since its launch in 2013 will be nominated for awards across a number of categories. Awards to be presented include PETRIe‘s Choice, Head Over Wheels Winning Writer and Best Online Publication - click here to see the full list of nominees.

During the night, a line-up of poets will take to the stage to perform their work. The line-up includes spoke-word artist Akshay Sharma, and the winner of the Student Wordsmith Poetry Slam. There will also be a creative sector exhibition, including stalls and representatives from Nottingham Writers’ Studio, and Loughborough enterprise hub, The Studio. Catherine Rogers from Creative Leicestershire will also be on hand for one-to-one discussions about your creative aspirations.
