Creative Writing graduate Kimberley Redway has achieved her ambition of becoming a published author and was commissioned by Bloomsbury Publishing, resulting in a heartwarming take on black identity in modern Britain. She said: “DMU taught me so much, like how to finish a novel, how to write to a brief by taking different subjects and making them your own and how to be entrepreneurial.”
