The Student Wordsmith is set to host its first annual awards at the Loughborough Students’ Union on 16 April 2016.

The evening will include a line-up of performances from special guests and nominees, as well as an exhibition area for guests to meet representatives from creative organisations and network with fellow writers and artists.
