Jess [she/her] is a Wulfrunian writer and reviewer in London. She likes her words and worlds a little weird.
Editors say her creative writing is 'fierce and compassionate', and loved ones say 'I just don't get it'. Since starting to write short and very short literary fiction in 2019, Jess has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize '19, the Sundress Press 'Best of the Net' 2020, and selected for the Best British and Irish Flash Fiction (BIFFY 50) 19-20, and been a finalist or shortlisted in several competitions. Her stories often centre a queering of gender and sexuality, intertextuality, and a nod to speculative fiction/magic realism. Because that's all good fun, dammit. She is currently writing a novel (fancy), and working on several longer short stories.
As a reader and reviewer she shows her love with margin-scrawl, folded corners, cracked spines, and coffee-rings.
As an interviewer she will encourage rambling about craft, language, and say 'interesting' a lot.
