It was lovely to speak to the students at Cardiff MET about work, writing and publishing. They also asked an informed bunch of questions during the formal and informal Q & A sessions. I stayed on in the evening for the launch of their brand new online journal The Metropolitan Review before braving reading extracts of a Cornish prose work-in-progress, as I thought I'd put myself back in their open mic shoes and there were a number of Cornish students present. Then I was able to sit back and enjoy the rest of the readings and I was particularly impressed with the confidence of the first year readers.
