Publishing news

In January when I was riding the wave of new year enthusiasm and motivation I made quite a few submissions in quick succession. Sadly that pace has slowed but I’m delighted that two of these flash fiction pieces have been published very recently.


Issue 21 Open Pen short fiction magazine

Session 3 Homework appears in issue 21 of the brilliant short fiction magazine Open Pen, of which I’ve been a subscriber for the past year or so. (I do so love a magazine you can hold in your hands). The mag is available in a selection of indy bookshops in London. Or if you’re oop North like me you can become a subscriber for just a tenner a year or order a one off copy.

Riggwelter press
Issue 9 Riggwelter Press

You’re the first person to ask me how I got here features in issue 9 of the brilliant (and Saboteur Award nominated) Riggwelter Press alongside amazing poetry, prose and experimental media. Just waiting for a moment to sit down and read the issue cover to cover!

Thank you so much to editors Sean and Amy who put so much work into these publications. It’s a joy to be part of them.

I’m aiming for 100 submissions this year. Currently at 23…

I’m currently writing my debut novel, ‘Up to the Stars’ (working title). If you love the work of Rachel Joyce, Mike Gayle, Kit de Wall, Beth O’Leary and Lia Louis, then I’m writing my book for you. What else might you like to know? I’m a Yorkshire lass in Manchester. I married my childhood sweetheart. I regularly engage in tsundoku – apparently it’s a Japanese word which means buying lots of books that you’ll never get round to reading. I also sing.
