Our anthology writers – part 2
Louise Ells spent her childhood beside the Ottawa River in northeastern Ontario, then combined random jobs (chef, roofer, co-pilot on a submarine) with years of travel. She has a Creative Writing MA from Bath Spa University and is now pursuing a PhD at Anglia Ruskin University. Her thesis comprises Lacunae, a collection of thematically linked short stories, and a critical commentary examining Alice Munro’s revision strategies in Dear Life. She’s recently had stories published in The Masters Review and Harts & Minds. Louise’s short story Push will appear in Words And Women: Two.
Hannah Garrard is currently studying for an MA in biography and creative non-fiction at the UEA, where she also took her undergraduate degree in English Literature in 2005. She has worked as a teacher in East Asia and West Africa, but Norwich is a place she always seems to come back to. Her writing has appeared in the Guardian, New Internationalist and Going Down Swinging. Her piece of creative non-fiction Did You Eat Lunch? will feature in Words And Women: Two.
Four more writers tomorrow!
