School of English Postgraduates at the University of St Andrews are warmly invited to present their research in progress at the PG Forum. The Postgraduate Forum provides a platform for PGs to meet and exchange ideas in a relaxed and friendly environment. Whether it's to try out a new creative piece on an audience, to get feedback on an idea or creative writing project, a thesis chapter draft or conference paper, the Forum is a receptive space in which to present material to peers and discuss your work.

Each session is planned to contain two 15-minute presentations or papers, followed by questions and discussion - but this is by no means set in stone. If you’d like to present your work in a longer or shorter slot, or even give a 30-minute mini-lecture on your topic, get in touch with the PG Forum team and we’ll do our very best to accommodate your proposal. Members of each of the School’s research groups are welcome to present, and the events are open to all staff and postgraduates. Refreshments will be provided.

If you would like to get in touch with the Forum committee with any proposals, questions or comments, please email
