Gemma Seltzer

I enjoy finding new ways to share my writing and reach readers.

My stories have been performed, projected and published. They've been abandoned in random places, crafted into bunting, and referenced to in academic papers.

I hold writing workshops focusing on the short story, my love of mornings or bringing writing from the page into real life. 

I'm a NAWE (National Association of Writers in Education) and Society of Authors member, with public liability insurance and DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) certificate.
