Keele University


This page is devoted to the novel Walking Through the Ashes, written by nine students at Keele University as part of their ‘Be more’ campaign  from this brief. T he camp  started at 9am on Monday 1st June and finished at 5pm on  Friday 5th June.

During that time this page was a living document that updated both automatically with information about the novel (such as wordcount – the final novel was 67,873 words) and manually with photos, tweets and other media. Now that the sprint has finished this page is a static record of information about the novel.

Day 4 is our day when we start letting the undergraduates fend for themselves – and they really started to perform, running their own scrums:

….and setting up their own ways of keeping track of character appearances.
