Date: 13 May 2014

Jane Draycott, one of our tutors on the Distance Learning MA in Creative Writing, has won the international Hippocrates Prize with her poem The Return.

As the Hippocrates Prize concerns poetry and medicine, The Return considers sanatoria around the world, left standing very much as the day they were abandoned, decades ago.

Jane received her award at an international symposium on poetry and medicine on 10th May 2014.
