Catherine Chanter is one of the winning writers in this year’s Asham Award. Her story ‘A Summer of Findings’ will be published alongside not only the other winners but also well-known names such as Margaret Atwood, Esther Freud and Yiyun Li. Bloomsbury will publish the 2009 Asham Award collection ‘Waving at the Gardener’ in September.
Catherine’s novella ‘Rooms of the Mind’ will be published early next year by Cinnamon Press. She was one of the runners-up in last year’s Bristol Short Story Prize with ‘The Boys’ Guide to Winning: No.1 Hide and Seek’.
