The Quill Society – Matt West!

This is back-tracking a bit, but back in November, The Quill Society had their debut event. Thanks to connections through Artswork, Southampton’s Poet Laureate, Matt West came in to talk to us.

The Quill Society’s aim is to bridge connections between students and the Literature industry – opening up opportunities to meet people that work within that industry, as well as to raise awareness of the types of careers on offer.

Matt was a fantastic guest speaker. Not only did he perform some of his poetry for us, and have some of his anthologies available for us to purchase, but he also spoke to us about how he got into poetry, and how he makes his living as a poet.


Courtney, one of my fellow students at Solent, wrote an article for On the Scene Magazine about the event. Click here to read it.
