Diablo | Berg’s Book Club

Creative Stories

As some of you know, I study Creative Writing at the University of Derby and I’m in my final year. Yay! I still don’t know if my degree will say Creative Writing, which was the name of the course when I signed up, or Creative and Professional Writing, which was the course name in my second year.
