I’m a short story writer with an MA in Writing currently studying for a Creative Writing PhD at Birmingham City University. My PhD thesis includes a short story collection and an exegesis that explores the correspondences between the short story form and psychological claustrophobia in the home.
My writing credits include being longlisted in the Frome Short Story Prize (2014), being shortlisted in the Fish Publishing Flash Prize (2014 and 2013), being longlisted in the Bristol Prize (2012), an honourable mention in the Ink Tears Flash Fiction Prize (2012), second place in the competition flash500 (2011) and prizes in association with the National Academy of Writing in both fiction and creative non fiction (2011). My stories have been published both online and in print by The View From Here, Litro, The Pygmy Giant, Stories with Pictures, Oblong, Ariadne’s Thread and Flash Flood Journal, as well as appearing in anthologies Blood From a Stone, Paper and Ink and I Am Therefore I Write.
I was also a shortlisting judge for Wenlock Poetry Competition in 2013 and 2014.
