Congratulations to MA creative writing student Breda Joyce.

Anne and Vivien Ridler, as photographed by Judith Aronson, in a moment celebrated in Breda Joyce's poem

Breda's poem, "Free Fall" was selected as the winner of a creative writing contest in association with Likenesses: Portraits of Literary and Cultural Genius, an exhibition by American photographer and academic Judith Aronson. Her photographs were on touring display in the Boole Library earlier this semester.


UCC students were invited to write a piece in response to one of Aronson's photographs, which feature well known writers, artists and scholars. 

In her poem, Breda chose to focus on an image of the late scholar and Printer of Oxford, Viven Ridler and his wife, the poet Anne Bradby.
