(Tip #1: You don’t need to be a student (or even a writer!) to attend our meetings!)
As one of our special August On the Move: Sundays Lovely Sundays events, we met for our annual Poetry Picnic….
This month the Uni-Verse is on the move, bringing together fellow writers and providing opportunities for literary inspiration.
Organised and hosted by Holly, we met for our first (socially-distanced) event after the lockdown. With hand sanitiser aplenty, we swapped old favourites and new loves.
Between April 1 and June 3, 2020, the Uni-Verse self-isolated. To stay in touch with and through our stories, we hosted 10 online meetings and one week-long Decameron, enjoying each other’s company through headphones & screens.
Just before the corona crisis locked everyone’s doors, the brilliant Tara Skurtu stopped by the Uni-Verse for a second time….
Third time’s a charm – for our third annual Christmas party, we gathered in our cave below the Highlander Pub & Garden, exchanged Creative Secret Santas, gestured hysterically in charades and wore snazzy pastel crowns (as one should, always). We also decorated our own Christmas tree (he’s called Henry) and became Queen Elizabeth, Holly’s daughter, and Naruto for a while.

Breakfast-themed poetry, autumn-themed Chai galaxy cakes and lots and lots of fandom talks and literary discussion abounded at our first joint breakfast with the STV Anglistik!
