[Draft 1] I am a writer, here is some information about my writing.
[Draft 2] I am a writer from all over. I write for adults and for children. I concentrate mainly on prose but did include an angry limerick in the flash fiction collection I’m currently querying. My stories have been printed online and in print. I like to write about nature, grief, class, otherness, and unrequited love. I love a story for grown ups from the point of view of a child.
[Draft 3 – For those who like their writer with accreditation]
I have a BA in English Literature, and an MA in Creative Writing, both from Newcastle University. I successfully applied for a DYCP grant from Arts Council England and a Helen Barratt Bright Idea Award in 2021.
I’ve been a bookseller, a magazine publisher, a proof-reader, a marketer, a writing group facilitator, a candlestick maker… (not quite). I’ve judged and managed writing competitions and I’ve won a few too.
[Draft 4] I love writing stories. I hope you love reading them.
