Y'all

Post by Ros » Wed Apr 02, 2014 10:01 pm

Well, I've finally finished procrastinating and finished my MA (and got a distinction, for what it's worth!!), and had a good time, with some very helpful and useful tutors, and met and worked with some great poets - and it's still great to have this place, with your good humour and excellent comments. You're all spiffing. Thank you.

Terrific news, Rosemary! Very well done.

So, what's next? After a rest, I mean.

Nash.

Great news, Ros!

Big, merrily rolling congratulations!

The occasion calls for spiffing celebration, I think. Here:

Nash, thanks! What next? I don't know, try to get something published, I guess! Easier said than done, though.

Jane, that's mighty dramatic for first thing in the morning! Thank you!

Well done, Ros! That's a terrific achievement. It's Badcoe MA now, is it? (Sounds like a hit series about a no-nonsense American police physician to me.)

So do we just call you marm?

Worth quite a lot, in my book!

Thank you, everyone! I couldn't have done it (or at least not done it so well) without you.

Congrats on becoming a Master of the arts! (sounds sort of yoda-like when you put it like that)

We'll done Ros

Remind me was it an MA in Creative Writing or something different?

I am interested in what were the best bits and what you got most out of?
