I have been awarded a Literature Wales Writers’ Bursary

I’m still pinching myself!

I am incedibly honoured to have been awarded a Literature Wales Writers’ Bursary for 2013. This will allow me to take three months away from my ‘day’ job to concentrate on finishing my second novel for Honno Press, which is set during the First World War and to be published early in 2014.

My time will start on May 1st. I can’t wait!

From the Literature Wales press release:

 ’English-language fiction in Wales will be particularly enriched with Francesca Rhydderch, Simon Rees and Juliet Greenwood taking time out to work on their new English-language novels.’


Wow.
