    Hey so Warwick is my favourite at the moment for English and creative writing. I am currently getting things (poetry) published in various online publications and lit mags to put in my personal statement. However: I use a pen name for my writing. It's not a million miles away from my real name (same first name but different spelling, and the surname is my grandmother's maiden name). I'm worried that they won't believe that it's my writing because it's not under my /actual/ name? Is this a valid worry and should I revert back to my real name or am I good? Thanks!

    Mention that you use a pen name
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
