Our anthology writers – part 4

Judith Omasete is originally from Kenya, where she worked with International Non Governmental Organizations, dealing with agricultural development, healthcare, education, child welfare, micro enterprises, tourism, conservation and land tenure. Now Judith lives in Norfolk with her family and has worked as a high school teaching assistant for 4 years. She has run workshops in schools for Norfolk Education Action for Development (NEAD) and is currently pursuing further education. Her piece of creative non-fiction called My Dog Is Boss will feature in Words And Women’s inaugural anthology.

Bridget Read is studying for the MA in Biography and Creative Non-fiction at UEA. Before coming to Norwich in September 2013, she worked for New York and Guernica magazines, and was living in Brooklyn, New York. She graduated from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut in 2012 and grew up in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. Her memoir Appetition will be published in the anthology.

Elizabeth Reed
is currently working on her first novel, an historical thriller set in 6th Century BC Delphi. Her previous writing has included educational and marketing materials, news articles, pop songs and - since attending two creative writing courses in the past year - short fiction. What seems like a long, long time ago she received a first class BA degree in English and Drama from Loughborough University and then studied for an MA in English and American Literature and Film in New York. After 20 years of living in London she returned to Norwich where she was born and raised and now divides her time between there and Gran Canaria where she occasionally works as a singer. Her slice of creative non-fiction This Picture Will Be Hidden will be included in the anthology.

 Bethany Settle has an MA in Creative Writing: Prose from the University of East Anglia. She remained in Norwich, where she works at a library. Reading, writing and nature are her top three best things. She is writer-in-residence at the Rumsey Wells pub in Norwich, and is currently writing a novel that explores grief and loss. Her story Pendulum will be published in the anthology.

We will feature our final 4 fabulous writers tomorrow!
