about / life story writing


I'm a writer based in York, England. My stories have been published widely in places like The Guardian and Writers' Forum, and have won prizes at Bridport The Willesden Herald and Magic Oxygen.

As well as writing my own stories, I help other people write theirs, working as a ghostwriter specialising in life stories.

Some photos and words about where I write.

Here's an interview I did for Dan Purdue, where I talk about my short stories and the experience of being selected as a Guardian Summer Read.

If you'd like to discuss a commission, or if you're thinking of writing about your life and would like to know how I can help, do get in touch: teresa_stenson@yahoo.co.uk
