Lynne Rees wins University of Kent Teaching Prize 2004
Mon 1 Mar 2004
NAWE member Lynne Rees has been awarded this Faculty (of Humanities) prize for excellence in the teaching of poetry on the creative writing programme. She received an award of £1500 and will be considered as the University's candidate for the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme.
Lynne joined Kent in 2000 and teaches prose and poetry on the part-time Certificates in Writing and the Diploma in English (Literature with Creative Writing). Her students have achieved publication success in both local and national competitions and journals, and have been placed as winners and runners up in the University's own TS Eliot Poetry Prize.

In 2002 she was the first Poet in Residence at Benenden School, Cranbrook, Kent, and in 2003 travelled to Portugal, as a guest of the British Council and Wales Arts International, to promote The Pterodactyl's Wing - Welsh World Poetry (Parthian Books 2003). She has read her work at the Poetry Society and Troubadour Cafe in London and is featured in Four Caves of the Heart - An Anthology of 14 Women Poets (Second Light Publications 2004). A prize-winning poet, her first book length work of fiction, The Oven House, will be published by Bluechrome this summer.
