Gaynor Jones


I am a freelance writer based in Manchester. I specialise in short fiction. I am the recipient of the 2018 Mairtin Crawford Award and have also had work nominated for Best Small Fictions and Best of the Net. I am a regular performer at spoken word nights and a champion of the short fiction scene in the North West. I am currently working on my debut short story collection and will release a flash fiction book in January 2019
