An extract from Kirsty's thesis,
In My Hand, has been published in Cardiff Metropolitan's Creative Writing Anthology (2015).
Kirsty is currently a full-time PhD student in Creative Writing. She is using the concept of the rhizome to explore the impact of the economic recession on mental health. Her thesis consists of two parts, the first of which is a novel set in her hometown of Newport, Wales and follows the physical and mental decline of a heroin addict. The second part is a critical commentary that reflects on the construction of male inexpressivity in her own writing and that of other fiction writers.
Kirsty has aspired to be a writer since childhood. Her favourite book,
Yearsof Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez, was a gift from her high school English teacher. She loves writing in pencil, reading in bed with a Strongbow and finding inspiration in the strangest of places.
MA Creative Writing (Cardiff Metropolitan University, 2014).
BA (Hons) English Studies with Film Studies (University of Glamorgan, 2010).
