About M.I.R

MIR is the Birkbeck Creative Writing Programme’s annual publication The Mechanics’ Institute Review. The tenth anniversary edition was published in September 2013:

"This compelling collection takes the reader around the globe: a quest across Cyprus, a mission to India, segregation in South Africa, adolescence in Australia. Each story offers a unique perspective on the world and our place in it. See with eyes of a carp, hold last rites for a fox, wonder what's real in a story of writers. A tsunami, a child's game both can change lives in MIR's extraordinary literary anthology. These short stories leave lasting impressions, and show what story-telling today is all about. Their distinctiveness and variety eloquently disprove the notion that creative writing programmes produce homogenised writing. Produced, edited and published by students on creative writing MA courses at Birkbeck, University of London, MIR10 showcases the brightest emerging talent from Birkbeck's Creative Writing Programme. The issue also features exciting new work from award-winning authors Evie Wyld, Adam Marek, Colin Grant and Jackie Kay, and a foreword by the CW Programme Director Russell Celyn Jones."
