Chelsey Flood signs book deal
'Infinite Sky' is the first novel by recent UEA alumna Chelsey Flood and is to be published in February 2013 by Simon and Schuster in the UK and Arena in Germany. Chelsey (pictured) graduated from the Prose Fiction MA in 2010 and was the recipient of that year's Curtis Brown Award for the best student on the MA, as chosen by a panel of Curtis Brown agents. She began writing 'Infinite Sky' (then called 'Silverweed') while on the MA, which resulted in her being selected by Bernadine Evaristo for the 2010-11 Arvon Jerwood Mentoring Scheme. She subsequently received an award of £4,100 from the Arts Council's Grants for the Arts scheme to complete ‘Infinite Sky’ and is currently working on her second novel.
