It was incredible, really, the way he lost everything – that the plane which carried Fin’s mother and father should fall with such precision onto the car that contained his wife and child. Fin could not believe it at first, when the policeman came for him at work.
Each year the UEA publishes a series of anthologies featuring the work of students graduating from the various Creative Writing MA programmes. My work appears in the 2014 edition of the prose anthology, details of which can be found here. It features the work of all thirty-one students on the course, as well as a foreword by Anjali Joseph and an introduction by Henry Sutton and Jean McNeil.
“Friends” is a story about a man who suffers an unfortunate series of accidents. It was written during my first year at the UEA, and as such seemed an appropriate contribution. The anthologies were launched on October 14th 2014, with a reading at the Drama Studio on the University of East Anglia campus.
I’m currently still a student at the UEA, now on the Creative Writing PhD programme.
