Royal Literary Fund Fellows

Would you like to improve your academic writing?

If so you can book a session with our Royal Literary Fund Fellows. The Fellows are available by office appointment to help all members of the university – undergraduates and postgraduates alike – with queries and problems relating to the practical aspects of writing.

Arrange a meeting

If you are based at Penryn, please email to arrange an appointment on a Thursday or Friday during termtime. Anna's appointments will all be in person, using Calendly for bookings. 

Anna Wilson

RLF Fellow at Penryn

Anna Wilson read Modern Languages at Cambridge and then went on to become a fiction editor for Macmillan Children’s Books and HarperCollins. Since 2013 she has lectured in Creative Writing for Bath Spa University, City University of London and the Arvon Foundation. Her tutoring has seen both undergraduate and post-graduate writers grow in confidence and gain their own publishing deals.

Anna is also a professional writer of twenty years standing and has written over 50 published books for children ranging from picture books to fiction and non-fiction for young readers. She has also written a memoir, A Place for Everything – my mother, autism and me (HarperCollins, 2020), which was inspired by her mother’s late diagnosis of autism at the age of 72 and the impact of this on her mother’s mental decline and its effect on the wider family. Her current work in progress concerns the life of her husband’s grandfather, Dr David Thomson, who spent much of his career developing an early protype of the flu vaccine.

Students can book a session with Anna via her online booking page on Calendly. Please sign up to an available slot in Anna’s timetable. She is available on Thursdays and Fridays in term time.
