Aifric Campbell’s new novel
‘On The Floor’ is the third novel by UEA Creative Writing graduate Aifric Campbell (pictured) and is published by Serpent’s Tail today. Aifric completed the MA in Creative Writing at UEA in 2003 and was awarded a PhD in Creative and Critical Writing in 2007. She had previously completed a degree in Linguistics and lectured in semantics at the University of Gothenburg, and worked for several years as an investment banker for Morgan Stanley before leaving to study psychotherapy. She taught on UEA's undergraduate Creative Writing programme in 2006 and 2007 and subsequently on the MA in Creative Writing and Personal Development at the University of Sussex. Aifric will be chairing a discuss on ‘Finance in Fiction’ at the London School of Economics this evening with the panellists Justin Cartwright, John Sutherland and DJ Taylor.
