Thirty MA students from the University of Winchester celebrated new writing careers with the launch of their anthology, Litmus 2015, on Tuesday 12th May.
The students came together from the MA Writing for Children and MA Creative and Critical Writing programmes to compile, edit, design and produce the anthology, which acts as a vital showcase for their work.
After short speeches by programme leaders Judith Heneghan and Julian Stannard, the guests were entertained by quick-fire readings from the students (including SCBWI member Kim Howard, reading from her fabulous MG novel If Only ...)

And there was a wonderful cake that mimicked the hummingbird design of the cover, made and donated by Carol Thompson www.cakesbeyondbelief.co.uk.

Great news and many hearty congratulations to SCBWI Members Kim Howard, Charlotte Comley, and Caroline Cleland, all on the Children's Fiction MA
