Menna van Praag is shortlisted for Masters Teacher of the Year prize
Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) Lecturer in Creative Writing, Menna van Praag, has been shortlisted in the Masters Teacher of the Year category at this year’s Postgrad Awards.
The award celebrates teachers who create “an exceptionally positive and encouraging learning environment, give their students high quality constructive feedback, are passionate about their subject and always put their students first”.
The Cambridge-based author and academic was nominated by a former student and is up against seven other talented lecturers from around the world, with the results to be announced on 28 June.
Reacting to her nomination, Menna said:
Menna is a Lecturer on the MA in Creative Writing and is also a Royal Literary Fund Fellow at ARU. She is the author of six magical realism novels and a fantasy trilogy: The Sisters Grimm. Her latest novel The Night of Demons and Saints, the second in the series, was published in February and she is currently editing the trilogy’s final instalment which is due out early next year.
The Postgrad awards are organised by FindAUniversity who operate a portfolio of websites, including FindAMasters.com and FindAPhD.com, which help thousands of students to find their perfect postgraduate degree every year.
