Film/Lit grad Nathaniel Newman is currently doing an MA in Creative Writing. He kindly returned to the department to talk to The Practice of Film Criticism students about what he’s learned from doing a degree that focusses on practice and delves into more personal and poetic areas than are usually required of an academic essay; a process that involves the making and taking of criticism from colleagues, and that thus requires the creation of a safe and respectful context in which that can flourish.
