Rebecca started writing creatively at school and had her first poem published in a national youth anthology, Zodiac, at the age of 11. She started writing short stories during her time at Sheffield Hallam University, where she studied for an undergraduate degree in English and a Masters degree in Writing. Whilst there she won the E. A. Markham Prize for Short Story, and saw her stories published in Dream Songs and two issues of Matter. In 2020 her entry was commended in the Hive South Yorkshire Short Story Competition, and in 2021 her work appeared in Test Signal: Northern Anthology of New Writing, published by Bloomsbury.
Whilst her writing has been on hold for a few years due to her re-training in psychotherapy, Rebecca hopes to develop her research into the arts and mental health and to continue writing where possible. She has particular interest in lyrical prose, prose adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays, and explorations on the nature of female violence.
