What is Minerva?



This is a blog dedicated to the work of year 9 students from Brompton Academy who are participating in the University of Kent’s Minerva Award. This year the award will see students undertaking a workshops about creative writing and learning about the city of Athens, both ancient and modern. They will plan and carry out creative fieldwork in Athens as part of a trip to the city in spring 2019. Based on this work students will create a final piece of creative work to be published in summer 2019. The Minerva Award is a collaboration between the University’s Partnership Development Office, the School of English and Brompton Academy.


This blog is run and updated by the students. So watch this space for updates on how they are doing, what they are interesting and some extracts from their fantastic creative writing.
