The course supervisors continued their readings and seminars on Thursday while Friday gave us our first lick of the peer-review/critique-circle experience.
It was not the evisceration I expected but a valuable series of inputs and comments on the way we structured and conveyed meaning through our work.
I’ve been looking for this grade of sand-paper all my life.
Here are the last in my series of photos taken in and around the Rhodes University campus:
Oh, I LOVE Gtn and Rhodes especially. We studied there and it’s where my husband and I met 20 years ago (now married for 17)
The pic of the library sign with the lamp poised above it, is particularly stunning. Well done!

Thank you:) I sum up photography as “getting lucky with light.”
Who’s the man in the statue?
I don’t know for sure.
One of my classmates said many of the students refer to it as Joan of Arc, but they aren’t completely certain as the statue’s pedestal is engraved with the dates of the First and Second World Wars.
In that context, perhaps it is of the “Unknown Soldier”?
Ah ok. Speaking of statues at universities, I heard of this very cruel orientation ritual at Harvard involving a statue…rather disgusting…I hope the Rhodesians (if that’s their nickname) don’t do the same…
Thankfully, post-grads appear to be spared any Rhodent hazing rituals.
You’re doing a creative writing MA? Deeply deeply envious!! Can’t wait to hear how you get on (and when you win your first Pullitzer, can I please say “I knew her before she was famous”??) ;P
It’s a marvelous programme Jeanne. I’m in their two-year part-time stream.
