Gareth Hewitt

  • Northern Debut Award for Fiction, 2021
Gareth Hewitt

Gareth Hewitt lives on the cusp of Lancashire and Merseyside with his wife and two daughters, where he works on his first novel between school runs and a career in healthcare. In 2015 he became a flash fiction judge with Mash Stories after winning the fifth instalment of the competition. Since then, he has focused on developing his writing and completing his first full-length work. He finds inspiration in the storytelling traditions of mythology and legend, whether found in ancient sagas or the modern superhero narrative, which lend a fantastical element to his literary fiction. His current project is an exploration of the journey through fatherhood, without the limitation of contemporary social boundaries.
