Eleanor Wasserberg shortlisted for 2016 East Anglian Book Awards
Foxlowe, the debut novel by UEA alumna Eleanor Wasserberg, has been shortlisted in the Fiction category of 2016 East Anglian Book Awards. Eleanor (pictured) was born in Staffordshire and graduated with a BA in Classics and English from the University of Oxford before joining the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) at UEA in 2009. She began writing Foxlowe while on the MA and was subsequently awarded a grant from Arts Council England to complete the novel, which was published by Fourth Estate earlier this year. Eleanor has taught English in Paris and Trivandrum and currently teaches in a school in Norwich. The East Anglian Book Awards are staged in partnership between the Eastern Daily Press, Jarrolds, Writers’ Centre Norwich and UEA. The overall East Anglian Book of the Year winner, selected from the six category winners, will be announced on November 3rd, and will receive a £1,000 prize.
