‘Infinite Sky’ by Chelsey Flood
‘Infinite Sky’ is the first novel by UEA alumna Chelsey Flood and is published by Simon and Schuster this week. Chelsey (pictured) was born in 1983 in Derby, and obtained a BA in English from the University of Falmouth before joining the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) at UEA. She graduated in 2010 as the winner of that year’s Curtis Brown Award for best Creative Writing dissertation. Chelsey began writing ‘Infinite Sky’ during her MA year, and worked on the novel under the guidance of Bernardine Evaristo as part of the Arvon-Jerwood mentoring scheme and subsequently with the assistance of an Arts Council Award.
