About

Jess [she/her] is a Wulfrunian 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'. Jess began writing short and very short fiction in 2019, and has since been nominated for the Pushcart Prize '19, the Sundress Press 'Best of the Net' 2020, 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.
