Marcus Sedgwick is author of 16 books for children and teenagers and is well known for the dark themes in his young adult fantasy books. Robin Mukherjee has twenty-five years' experience of script writing for art house cinema, mainstream British television, radio and theatre.
Marcus Sedgwick as Author-in-Residence and Robin Mukherjee as Writer-in-Residence offered tutorials with students and also collaborated in holding joint masterclasses. Selected students were also offered six months mentoring by the writers through the University's industry mentors programme.
