Congratulations to OOC DTP student Nina Ellis on winning an Editors' Choice Award in the annual Raymond Carver Short Story Contest. You can read about the competition and this year's winners here. Nina's short story is called 'The Kingdom of the Shades' and is a queer tale of love and loss, about ballet dancers and ghosts wandering around Rome at night. It will be published in the forthcoming Fall Issue of Carve Magazine, alongside an interview about Nina's writing process.

Nina has also recently published a piece on 'The Biographer as Detective', exploring the connections between biographical research and the detective novel, which you can read here.
