IdeasTap Inspires WCN

This autumn I was chosen as a winner of the 2014 IdeasTap Inspires Writers’ Centre Norwich Creative Writing Competition, a 6-month mentoring scheme for budding fiction writers under 30. Part of the prize includes a 4-day writing retreat in Norwich so tomorrow I am off to the City of Literature to meet writers, agents, story lovers, and an improvised cast of East Anglian characters (I always have the greatest conversations with strangers in this city, my favorite of which was an un-solicited lesson in yogic breathing from an elderly Indian gentleman on the bus).

“Skin” premier this Friday

This Friday our short film “He Took His Skin Off For Me”, based on my short story published in Devil’s Lake, will premiere at the 2014 Palm Springs Film Festival.
