The Book of Unwritten Rules is launched at Waterstones

by Rufus Purdy Events, From Our Students

Last night saw the students from our Autumn 2011 creative writing courses come back together at Waterstones Piccadilly to launch their short-story anthology The Book of Unwritten Rules. This wonderful collection, featuring stories by the group’s four published authors as well as nine rising literary stars, was toasted with many glasses of wine – and speeches by Curtis Brown Creative’s Rufus Purdy and novelist and group member James Hannah – in front of nearly 150 people. Here are some images from the night.
