The Narrative Research Group of Edge Hill Writers will enrapture audience members with lively fiction readings which celebrate the multiplicity of identities which we inhabit in writing. Exploring themes of identity, place and sexuality, the writers will lead a passageway of personas in contrasting settings.
Joining Professor Ailsa Cox to share their characters’ stories will be:
PhD graduate, Carol Fenlon, reading from her latest book, Plotlands, set in a decaying seaside shantytown, where people come to escape their former lives.
Award-winning playwright Billy Cowan who will deliver some of his favourite flash fiction – a wry and humorous account of growing up gay in Northern Ireland.
Dr Kim Wiltshire, Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing, scriptwriter and fiction writer whose main research interest includes gender representations, masculinity and feminism.
Graduate Teaching Assistant and PhD student Philippa Holloway, a globally published short fiction writer. Philippa’s research looks at the cultural impact of landscape and digital technology on the act of writing.
