Dr Katherine Stansfield
Creative writing tutor
My debut novel, The Visitor, was published by Parthian in 2013. It was described by the Daily Mail as ‘An evocative record of a lost age… unmistakably heartfelt’ and it went on to win the 2014 Holyer an Gof Prize for Fiction.
My first book of poetry, Playing House, was published by Seren in 2014, and I was awarded a Writer’s Bursary by Literature Wales awarded to complete my second collection.
I gained a PhD in creative writing from Aberystwyth University, where I also taught as a Lecturer for several years.
Falling Creatures, a crime novel, will be published by Allison & Busby in 2017, with a sequel to follow in 2018.
