My decision to undertake my teacher training at Chester was due in no little part to the incredibly positive experience I had in the English department.

Graduated: BA (Hons) Creative Writing with Journalism

Currently:  Marketing and PR

My Creative Writing degree helped me to secure a full-time position at a North East marketing and PR agency. The main responsibilities of my job include writing press releases for local businesses with a newsworthy story to tell, writing and editing marketing materials – such as website content and company newsletters – and updating social media accounts.

The skill of writing concise, effective sentences and the discipline of thorough proof-reading and editing developed by my degree have really helped me to fit into this creative and enjoyable role.
