As we roll into autumn, we’re joined by Rebecca Watson, novelist and arts writer. Rebecca’s debut novel, Little Scratch, grew from a short story that was shortlisted for the White Review short story prize and the novel itself was shortlisted for this year’s Desmond Elliott Prize.
Among all the other talking our chat took us through: expanding a short story into a novel. Investigating how writing can replicate the immediacy of thought. Playing with fiction and reality, and much more.
