Dr Andrew McDonnell, HE English Curriculum Lead at University Centre Peterborough.

Andrew McDonnell's journey to obtaining his PhD was not only marked by his personal dedication but was also supported by the Inspire Education Group (IEG). During his final writing-up year, he benefited from IEG's sponsorship, allowing him to delve into researching disruptive second-person narratives in short fiction about working-class lives.

Andrew expressed his gratitude, stating, "my final writing-up year was sponsored by IEG, where I researched disruptive second-person narratives in short-fiction about working-class lives. I hope to publish the creative part of my thesis in 2025."

In alignment with its commitment to nurturing emerging talent in creative writing, University Centre Peterborough offers the Malcolm Bradbury Scholarship Bursary for students pursuing the BA (Hons) Creative Writing program.
