Eleanor will be reading her work as part of the evening celebrations in the Fusion Digital Gallery. She was born in Staffordshire, and has a BA in Classics and English from the University of Oxford, and has worked as an english teacher in Paris and Trivandrum. In 2010, she graduated from the Creative Writing MA at the University of East Anglia, and Arts Council England recently awarded her a grant to complete her first novel Foxlowe. Foxlowe follows a cult survivor as she remembers a childhood both hedonistic and chaotic, violent and magical. Set in the Staffordshire Moorlands, Foxlowe draws upon pagan sites and local folklore to tell a story of love and power, shame and redemption.
