UoB English Postgraduate Forum

Hi all,

welcome to the UoB English postgraduate forum group!!

The premise of the forum is to create a supportive, informal online and on campus community for English Literature, Language, Creative Writing, and Shakespeare postgraduates at the University of Birmingham.  The forum will be a place where discussions can be held and news and ideas circulated relating to any part of English postgraduate study. 
As this is a relatively new group any ideas or suggestions to help facilitate the running of the group would be most welcome.

To join you have to be a registered English postgraduate student or academic staff member at the University of Birmingham.  From then on simply create a google email account and subscribe; then you're ready to blog away.
