  • Finchale Award for Short Fiction, 2022
Jack Joslin

Jack has been writing in some form or another since completing his MA in Creative & Life Writing from Goldsmiths College in 2012. Working as a copywriter for nearly a decade, Jack returned to creative writing in 2020, collaborating with his partner to publish an illustrated gift book, A is for Arson: A Suffragette Alphabet of Rebellion & Resistance. He has since written several short stories and is currently writing a novel that combines folk horror and small-office politics, which will feature crushing existential dread, ancient pig deities, and other subjects for all the family.


‘After dousing myself in cold water to prove this isn’t a dream, I am beyond honoured and excited to receive this award. Winning the Finchale Award for Short Fiction has not only helped quell that gnawing voice of self-doubt, but made the world of writing feel fresh, accessible, and exciting to an extent I didn’t think was possible. I am – and will forever be – hugely grateful.’
