Pocket Library

The Pocket Library was a project I organised for the Editing & Publication section of my Creative Writing MLitt.

Pocket Lib 1

The purpose of the project was to create a truly local micro library that existed both digitally and physically — literally a ‘library in your pocket’.

I focused submissions on other members of my cohort as a way to exhibit their talents and also to strengthen the sense of local writing — although some members were distance learners, I felt that being part of Glasgow University joined us together in this locality.


I rented a room at the university and also created an interlinked website where users could digitally ‘browse’ the library.


I received an A for this project. If you’re interested, you can read my reflective essay on the experience¬†here.
