Anne Atkins

Anne Atkins has written three novels, all with a Cambridge aspect: The Lost Child, On Our Own, and A Fine and Private Place. Her fourth (working title: An Elegant Solution) follows the life of the child protagonist of On Our Own, living in the famous Cambridge College where he sang as a chorister, now working as a Junior Research Fellow in number Theory. Demonstrating to an eager supervisee that, contrary to popular opinion, it is in fact possible to trace the provenance of cryptocurrency (bitcoins), he never thought to uncover such horror...

 

Freedom - Short Story Competition 2018

Pic_670

This year’s short story competition was a considerable success. Beverley Steffert, our Programme Secretary, arranged for it to be judged by the well-known literary agent Julian Friedmann. In his comments he remarked on the generally high standard of entries. He felt Cambridge Writers would be able to outclass any other writing group in the country. High praise indeed! On the basis of this we have now been able to publish all the entries.
 
The competition theme was ‘Freedom’, and entrants came at this theme in a multitude of different ways. The collection has been edited by our secretary, Siobhan Carew, and our Website Administrator, Thure Etzold. We owe them a big vote of thanks. The book is now available from Amazon as e-book or paperback.

Forgive me for bragging but I’m cock a hoop because I’ve just published my first novel, “Worlds Apart”. It’s a historical story of friendship set in Scotland at the time of the women’s suffrage movement and WW1.
