How do we value the humanities? Is it only monetary, can it be measured in other ways? Let’s talk about the literary arts and the idea of their value, reasserting the ‘humanity’ in the ‘humanities’. 

Featuring academics and writers, the MA Creative Writing symposium will provide an opportunity and space for discussion and reflection on the significance and importance of the humanities, the arts and writing, locally and internationally.
