Matthew Bellwood a writer and storyteller based in Leeds. Over the last few years, he has worked everywhere from the Canadian Fringe to the International Shakespeare Conference in New Zealand. Along the way, he has performed in schools, libraries, theatres and pop-up museums, at DIY rock gigs and, on one memorable occasion, to an audience of 1,200 girl-guides in a tent… as a writer, he is particularly interested in the beauty of the everyday, the futility of silence, the arrogance of the shy and the endless possibilities that life offers us to change ourselves, our lives and the lives of those around us.
Claire Massey Claire’s short stories, poems and articles have appeared online and in print in an assortment of places including The Best British Short Stories 2011, Patricide, Cabinet des Fées,Enchanted Conversation, Flax, The Adirondack Review and Brittle Star.
