This page of the website started in March 2020, when the coronavirus pandemic forced us to cancel one event and move another online. Here, you’ll find videos from that event – and other videos of Hub events, as they occur.
Geoff Nicholson – the author of seventeen novels and several works of non-fiction, including two books about walking. On this page, hosted by our friends at Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature, he interviewed by David Belbin. In the audio file at the end of the interview, Geoff gives a superb reading from ‘The Father Figure’, exclusively for Nottingham Creative Writing Hub.
Victoria Callus – Midlands4Cities-funded PhD student at NTU, and a star graduate of our BA Creative Writing. Victoria was due to support the novelist Geoff Nicholson in March 2020. The event had to be cancelled (for obvious reasons) and was moved online. Here, Victoria reads ‘Wade and Daffodils’, which she describes as ‘partly autofiction: various bits of the story have been taken from my and my parents’ life events. I often drink tea from the only Wade teacup that didn’t break on my grandmother’s head – she lived happily until the age of 84, though.’
