Tania Hershman, the prize-winning story writer, competition judge and editor will be joining us for our next Live Q&A session, scheduled for Thursday 17th February, at 7:30 p.m. UK time.
Three of Tania’s stories have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4, and many others have been published in print and online journals. Her stories, plays, poetry and film scripts, have also won or been shortlisted for numerous prizes.
Tania’s first short story collection The White Road and Other Stories was commended by the judges of the 2009 Orange Award for New Writers, and in 2010, her story ‘Mother Was an Upright Piano’ was nominated for a prestigious Pushcart Prize.
What the reviewers say about The White Road and Other Stories…
Dominique Wilson Wet Ink: This collection exemplifies everything that is best about the short story. Hershman extracts the very essence of a moment to reveal the poignant fragility of human relationships…
Sunshine O’Donnell: Incredibly lush, intelligent, seductive…Hershman possesses the rare scientific eye and accomplished literary sensibility of Bradbury, the wry clarity of Atwood. This collection is telescopic and rich, it puts down roots, it doesn’t leave you.
