With a foreword by Costa Prize-winner, Andrew Miller, the UEA Creative Writing Prose Anthology 2012 showcases over 30 talented new writers from the Prose and Life Writing courses. Over the decades, the UEA course has produced many successful, well-loved and prize-winning authors, such as Ian McEwan, Tracy Chevalier, Toby Litt, Kazuo Ishiguro, John Boyne, Susan Fletcher, Joe Dunthorne, Anajali Joseph and Sam Byers.
“In years to come, when some of these writers are household names, this book will allow you to say, with total superiority: ‘I preferred their early stuff.’”
Joe Dunthorne, author of Submarine
“Thoughtful prose... provocative stories that stay in the mind, extracts from novels that make one long for the finished book. Read them and sample the future.”
John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas
“The UEA is a supportive community, a creative muse and a fertile ground... to grow the best crop of new writers each year. Sample and enjoy this season’s produce.”
Jeremy Page, author of Salt and The Wake
