C. G. Menon

I was delighted to meet with Catherine Menon on the 4th June 2018 to talk about her debut collection, Subjunctive Moods. You can read my review of her collection here.

To give you a little more information about Catherine, she was born in Australia and now lives in London. She has won the Bare Fiction Prize, the Leicester Writes Prize, The Short Story Award, the Asian Writer Prize, The TBL Short Story Award and the Winchester Writers Festival award. She’s been shortlisted for the Fish short story prize, the Bridport prize and the Short Fiction Journal awards, as well as the Willesden Herald, Rubery and WriteIdea prizes and the Fiction Desk Newcomer award. Her work has been published in a number of anthologies and broadcast on radio, and she’s also been a member of several prestigious short story competition judging panels. She has a PhD in pure mathematics and is currently studying for a creative writing MA at City University. She’s also working on her first novel, set in 1980s Malaysia. As you can tell from all this, she’s great fun to talk to!
