Mary Aherne

+ + +

I write short fiction and poetry and have had poems and stories published in journals and anthologies. I have edited and contributed to a number of Humber Writers’ collaborations – Hide, Postcards from Hull, Under Travelling Skies, Slipway, Incoming – commissioned for the Humber Mouth and Beverley literature festivals. I taught Creative Writing at the University of Hull while completing a doctorate in English. A recent commission for the Hornsea Area Regeneration Partnership explores the stories and experiences of ex-employees of Hornsea Pottery. The resulting poetry will be incorporated into the public art trail which will run through the town centre.
