Meet the Writer – Lisa Blower

Creative Future is pleased to present a talk by author Lisa Blower on her work, life and career.

Lisa’s stories have won The Guardian National Short Story Award, been shortlisted for the BBC National Short Story Award and longlisted for The Sunday Times Short Story Award. These and others are collected in It’s Gone Dark Over Bill’s Mother’s (Myriad Editions, 2019).

Her novel Sitting Ducks was shortlisted for the inaugural Arnold Bennett Prize and longlisted for The Guardian Not the Booker. Lisa was the first Writer in Residence at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery, where she started her novel Green Blind, which tackles the politics of fracking in rural Shropshire.
