“Literature is nothing but carpentry. With both you are working with reality, a material just as hard as wood,” quoted by Ms Sarah Ann Bower, the writer-in-residence at Lingnan, from the late Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Despite more than 10 years’ teaching experience in university settings, Sarah has always tried to approach the teaching of creative writing as craft rather than academic discipline as this is what she believes it is.

Four academic staff will be given Lingnan’s Teaching Excellence Awards for 2013/14, while four others a Certificate of Merit for their enthusiasm for and commitment to quality teaching.
