Biography

Ros Brown is a Creative-Critical PhD candidate at the University of East Anglia. Her project investigates the theme of discipline as a phenomenological and creative quality, and the relationship between discipline and the novella form. She is writing two novellas about the lived experience of discipline, and a critical piece which argues that the novella has a privileged relationship with discipline and with the related concept of intensity.

Before studying for the MA in Creative Writing at UEA, Ros worked as an English teacher in secondary schools and then in alumni fundraising and communications. Her short fiction has appeared in Lighthouse (2016), Best British Short Stories 2017 (2017), and Ambit (2018).

Ros is one of the organisers of Love Takes Risks: The Poetics of Contemporary Small-Press Fiction, a symposium at UEA on 2 March 2019.
