Proud to be Staffs Story: Lisa Mansell
Lecturer, School of Creative Arts and Engineering
Through her love of her subject, Lisa has inspired her students to take their love of creative writing to the next stage and to celebrate their skills and passions. Thank you, Lisa, for making us Proud to be Staffs.
This Proud to be Staffs story is a little different; in fact it's a story in poetic form! Lisa's students submitted their story as a poem, testimony to the support Lisa gives them to love their subject and their talent too! Here it is:
No-one can steal her mantle
From ancient Norse to Bloomfield
She expands our minds creatively
Yes, there is no greater treasure pleasure
Than to ditch one's quilt for Saussure's measure
Shared out by golden bobbing Lisa
Who offers a lift on rhyming meter.
