Naomi Ishiguro

Naomi Ishiguro is a recent graduate of the University of East Anglia’s Creative Writing MA programme, and is the author of two books: Escape Routes, a short story collection due to be published with Headline in February 2020, and a novel, currently titled Common Ground, scheduled for March 2021. Before starting to write seriously she worked in an independent bookshop, which gave her plenty of experience in encouraging younger readers to feel confident and enthused about books. Naomi has run creative writing workshops for primary school children and undergraduates, and she passionately believes that reading, writing, and storytelling are for everyone, and not just for those who are said to be good at English in school.’
