Short story writer and poet, Tania Hershman will be reading from her work and talking about writing short stories at Novel Nights. Her latest book is Writing Short Stories: A Writers and Artists Companion (Bloomsbury 2014) which she co-wrote and edited with Courttia Newland.

Tania’s achievements grown year on year. Publications include short story collections: The White Road and Other Stories (Salt 2008), and a collection of very short fiction: My Mother was an Upright Piano (Tangent Press 2012). She curates a fabulous website about UK & Ireland short story activity ShortStops (you’d be mad not to join her mailing list!), and her list of awards and prizes is enough to make you dizzy.

She’s the Royal Literary Fund Writing Fellow at Bristol University, is studying for a PhD in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University, and teaches on Arvon courses.

Tania won 2nd prize in the 2015 Fool for Poetry chapbook competition and her debut poetry chapbook, Nothing Here is Wild, Everything Is Open, will be published in Feb 2016 by Southword Editions.

She will be joined by Helen McClory, a writer from Scotland. She has a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow and an MA in Creative Writing from the University of New South Wales.On the Edges of Vision is her first collection. Her debut novel, Flesh of the Peach, will be published next year by CCM Press. There is a moor and a cold sea in her heart.
Also readings by Harriet Kline, Kevlin Henney and Grace Palmer
