Bernardo Bueno in Brazilian anthology

'The Cold Grave of Mimi Meyers', a new short story by UEA writer Bernardo Bueno (pictured), is to be included in the Brazilian anthology '24 Characters per Second', which will be published by Dublinense this spring. Each story in the collection, which is edited by Rodrigo Rosp, was inspired by a film director, in Bernardo's case Tarantino. Bernardo was the first student in Brazil to complete an MA with a Creative Writing component, and is the recipient of a Brazilian government scholarship to undertake a PhD in Creative and Critical Writing at UEA, where he is being supervised by Clare Connors and Andrew Cowan. He has published short stories in numerous other journals and anthologies in Brazil, and his first collection, 'Minimundo' (IEL 2006), was the recipient in 2007 of the 'South, National and Books Literary Award' Best New Author prize, as well as being shortlisted for the A├žorianos Award for the Best Short Story Collection.
