The Student Wordsmith Awards Night Success



On Saturday 16th April 2016, The Student Wordsmith hosted its first-ever awards night. The occasion celebrated the success and talent of all our writers, artists and contributors since the platform launched in 2013.
The event included a creative industries exhibition, featuring fifteen exhibitors, as well as a line-up of performances from spoken-word artists Akshay Sharma, Shruti Chauhan, and DaveCreates. The night was a roaring success and we would like to extend our thanks to all of our nominees, their guests, the exhibitors, performers, contributors and sponsors of the event.

The complete list of winners and highly commended nominees is available here.

We’ve got some ideas for merchandise relating to The Student Wordsmith Awards 2016. Because your opinion means a lot to us, we want to know what you think!

We’ve drawn up this brief survey to enable us to do a bit of market research. The survey will take less than 2 minutes to complete, but will help us to assess the demand for our upcoming products/projects. Thank you!


A pause for breath…

Following the success of The Student Wordsmith Awards 2016, The Student Wordsmith Team will be taking a short break from its projects and publishing activities. However, we will still be contactable on Wednesdays and Thursdays via the usual email address: enquiries@thestudentwordsmith.com.
