Fay Wentworth is a writer of short stories and novellas. Her short stories, novellas and articles for children and adults have been published in magazines, anthologies, online and have won awards in national competitions.
She has pursued her love of creative writing since childhood – her first short story written at the age of eleven, a tragic tale about a rabbit in a thunderstorm!
She gives talks and readings to W.I.s, social and writing groups on The ups and downs of a short story writer; in which she tells of her determination to be a short story writer and how, over the intervening years, she has achieved her dream. During that time she has led, as her family would say, a ‘normal’ life, which includes marriage, motherhood and a career.
She has also appeared and read at Literary Festivals, Garden Fetes and performed at Malvern Theatres. She runs workshops in writing successful fiction – achieving her ambition to encourage others into the joys of creative writing.
