Jane Fraser lives, work and writes in the Gower peninsula, south Wales in a house facing the sea that bears the full brunt of the south-westerly wind. So much so, that she titled her debut collection of short fiction The South Westerlies, which was published by the UK’s foremost independent publisher of literary fiction, SALT, in June, 2019.
Her debut novel, ‘Advent’ is forthcoming from HONNO, the UK’s longest-standing independent women’s press, in January 2021.
She has been widely published in anthologies and reviews including New Welsh Review, The Lonely Crowd, Fish Publishing, TSS and The London Magazine. Her fiction has figured highly in major international competitions: in 2017 she was a finalist in the Manchester Fiction Prize and in 2018 was a prize winner in the Fish Memoir Prize. She was selected as one of Hay Writers at Work, a prestigious creative development award for emerging writers, in both 2018 and 2019.
She has several works in progress.
