A Lincoln Ghost Story Evening, White Hart Hotel, Monday, 27 Nov, 7.30. http://bit.ly/2zff2rM
Harlaxton Manor in Grantham are co-hosting an event for students from both campuses. Harlaxton is a study abroad campus for American students who come to the manor on an exchange. The idea is that Lincoln students go to the Harlaxton Manor for a Wednesday afternoon/evening, and Harlaxton students come to Lincoln for a Wednesday afternoon/evening. Think of it as a mini international exchange without all the travelling!
The event is open for all students from all programmes and all years, so anyone can apply. This is an especially great event for students who are interested in studying abroad, students who just came back from an international exchange (especially when they went to the USA), have an affiliation with the USA in any way, or students who just love amazing manor houses. Students can apply by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Wednesday the 15th of November students from Lincoln (who have applied) go to the Harlaxton Manor for an afternoon/evening to visit the campus and meet the American students there. There will be food, and fun and academic activities throughout the day, and we’ll arrange transportation to and from Harlaxton.
On Wednesday the 29th of November students from Harlaxton will come to Lincoln and we’ll arrange a similar programme for them, including a lecture, activities and a meal. Students who went to Harlaxton should also attend this day to greet the students and share in their activities here.

The International Office Mobility Team will be hosting their first Study Abroad Fair!
The Study Abroad Fair will take place on the 25th of October between 12 and 2 PM on the first floor platform of the Minerva Building.
During this event, exchange students from all over the world who are in Lincoln now will be showcasing their country and their home university in colourful booths. They will be joined by students from the University of Lincoln who have returned from their Study Abroad exchange, to share stories and experiences with interested students.
I recently spent an amazing two hours with some sixth-formers at the Priory Academy (LSST) in Lincoln. They’ve just embarked on the first year of their A-Level in Creative Writing.
While I was there I talked to them about the creative writing options available on the English degree at the University, told them a bit about my own career as a poet, read some of my poems and answered some very probing questions. Then I set them to work writing something of their own.
The results were very impressive – great ideas, real creativity and bags of enthusiasm. Not bad considering I gave them less than half an hour to do it in!
Many thanks to Sarah Oliver for organising the session (and to the other members of staff who came along). And special thanks to the writers themselves.
On National Poetry Day, Thursday 3 October, I’ll be giving a reading with Paul Sutherland and David Cooke at the Revival Cafe on Sincil Street, Lincoln, at 7.00.
Free entry. All welcome.
