Danielle Jawando
"I always do the first line well, but I have trouble with the others"

Danielle was born in Manchester, but currently lives in Hertfordshire where she's finishing her final year of an MA in Writing. She's always loved words and first discovered that she might actually have something when she got a week’s detention at the age of 11 for writing a review of the Titanic her teacher thought she copied off the back of the video. Danielle also teaches creative writing courses for adults and facilitates writing workshops within Hertfordshire. Her Short Story 'Paradise 703' was shortlisted for the Fine Line Finishing Press competition and she plans to start her novel as part of her dissertation next year.

Did You Know:
Danielle has also written a play which was put on in Stratford, and adapted from David Foster Wallace's 'Brief Interviews with Hideous men'?
