Elementaryvwatson is written by thirty-something Vic, a book-worm, writer who loves all things cultural and arty. Vic thinks of herself as Bridget Jones only taller, chunkier and more accident-prone.
Vic achieved a B.A (Hons) in Media, Communication and Cultural Studies from Newcastle University in 2008. She then graduated with a Masters (with Commendation) in Creative Writing in 2010 from Northumbria University. She is currently training to be a teacher in Post Compulsory Education and Training.
Vic’s flash fiction ‘John: Home Tomorrow’ was featured in 6th Element’s ‘Home Tomorrow’ anthology. In February 2012, Victoria released a collection of her short stories entitled ‘Letting Go’. Vic’s short story ‘The Piano’ won North Tyneside Council’s Story Tyne 2012 competition. Her debut novel ‘Fix Me Up’ remains a work in progress.
As well as this blog, Vic is also a regular contributor on other blogs. She has previously written articles for True Faith (Newcastle United fanzine), Newcastle’s Evening Chronicle (ncjMedia), The Journal (ncjMedia) and Closer Magazine (Bauer Media). She has also reviewed for Waterstones Online and Amazon.
