Heather Clitheroe, writer

My work is a mix of science fiction and fantasy. Speculative fiction is so often plot-driven, so I strive for stories that are as much about the concept is it is about character — the choices made, the sacrifices, the fears and hopes, the joys and losses.

I am a submissions editor at the award-winning Uncanny Magazine, and a past writer-in-residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts and the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts.

I’m available for critiques and developmental editing, resume and cover letter advice, and workshops. Please contact me to discuss your ideas.
