If you register, you'll be invited to online workshops throughout the year delivered by the English and Creative Writing and/or Anthropology departments to help you hone your writing skills and learn from the university’s academic staff. You’ll also receive information about upcoming Goldsmiths events, resources, recommendations and opportunities that will help your entry be the best it can be before submission.
