We were delighted to announce Angela Hughes as the winner of the Work in Progress Grant
Angela Hughes was a press officer for ten years before completing an MLitt in Creative Writing at the University of Stirling. She graduated in November 2012, was short-listed for Scottish Book Trust’s New Writers awards and had her first story published in New Writing Scotland. A year later she was in hospital in Glasgow on the urgent list for a heart transplant, which she received on Christmas Day. Her work in progress, The Glass Spider, is based on the experience and is her first attempt at a novel.
