Our anthology writers – part 4

Anna Metcalfe was born in Holzwickede in 1987. Her stories have been published in Tender Journal, Elbow Room, Lighthouse and The Warwick Review. In 2014, she was shortlisted for The Sunday Times Short Story Award. She lives in Norwich, where she is working on her first collection. Anna’s story The Professor will appear in Words And Women: Two.

Marise Mitchell’s novel Bunny Slayer was published in 2008. Now she has two books on the go: one a young adult fiction book set within a parallel universe and the other a collection of musings on the menopause, as there is chick-lit and misery-lit but no menopause -lit out there! Marise lives in Dereham with Ian and teaches ESOL locally.  They relocated from Hertfordshire in 2013 and Marise says she is happy to be here in the holiday zone of her childhood with the big skies above.  Marise’s story Now You See Me will be included in our anthology.

Anthea Morrison grew up in Hertfordshire and has lived in London, Cambridge and New York, where she first realised her passion for creative writing at the Gotham Writers’ Workshop. Now back in Cambridge, she is an active member of the local Angles writing workshop. Anthea has had stories published online, and is studying for an MA in Creative Writing at Royal Holloway University. Anthea’s short story You Have What You Want  will be published in the anthology.

Patricia Mullin graduated from the MA Writing the Visual, exploring the relationship between creative and critical writing and visual culture at Norwich University for the Arts. In 2009 she was shortlisted for an Arts Council Escalator Award. Her 2005 novel Gene Genie was republished as an e–book in 2012. Patricia devised and led three short fiction courses for the Sainsbury Centre for the Visual Arts; she is an associate tutor at the University of East Anglia. Her novel Casting Shadows was commended in the Yeovil International Literary prize 2014 and Patricia has just been awarded an Arts Council grant to re-draft it. Patricia’s story The Sitting  was included in our inaugural anthology. Her short story The Siren  will feature in Words And Women: Two.
Radhika Oberoi is pursuing an MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) from the University of East Anglia. She is the recipient of an Asia Bursary, supported by the UEA Guardian Masterclasses. She’s from India and has moonlighted as a journalist for the Times of India, the Hindu Literary Review, and more recently, the New York Times blog, India Ink. Her day job back home required her to sit at a desk and work in an advertising firm. Radhika’s work Reporter will feature in Words And Women: Two.
