Publishing at Middlesex

Middlesex University's staff are regularly published, with both academic and creative works.

The university also supports its students when they are looking to publish and promote their work.

Just two recent examples of BA Creative Writing and Journalism students publishing their work include​:

  • Twitter
  • YouTube

Indeed, alumna Nicole C. Moon came back to Middlesex University in Nov 2021 to deliver a learning event titled 'How to self-publish' for current BA students and MA students. You can see a recording of the event below:


Furthermore, Kadisha Kaur-singh, one of our BA English students, recently published an article about hair styles and cultural appropriation in GUAP magazine, as well as an app with ERIC to provide advice and opportunities for young creatives.

Similarly, Elyn Joy, an alumni of the MA Novel Writing, and Gabriel Wisdom, currently completing his PhD in Creative Writing recently published work in The Book of Demons.

And one of the latest publications we'd like to mention is the novel Lagos to London by Middlesex University student Lola Ekugo.
