New Writing Ventures Winner 2007: Suzanne Joinson
Suzanne was born in Crewe, Cheshire in 1974. She now lives in London and works in the literature department of the British Council. She spends much of her time in North Africa and the Middle East and her writing has been inspired by these travels and the friendships she has made. Syria, Yemen and Egypt have all become her alternative spiritual home. Recently her reviews of Palestinian literature have featured in Al-Ahram weekly (Egypt's largest newspaper), and she is editing a collection of short stories by Syrian women for Saqi Books. Having just completed an MA in Creative Writing at Goldsmiths University, Suzanne is now working on a novel.
