In conversation with Julia Armfield:  Writing gothic fictionPart of the Bronte Festival of Women's Writing.

How can a story be a haunting love story? We’re joined by Julia Armfield, author of the salt slow and Our Wives Under the Sea, to discuss writing gothic inspired fiction. We’ll chat about how Victorian Literature can inspire contemporary stories of love, horror, and wonder, and her career as an emerging female writer.

Julia Armfield is the author of the award-winning short story collection ‘Salt Slow’ and critically-acclaimed debut novel ‘Our Wives Under The Sea’. Her work explores the fine line between love and horror, and has been shortlisted for the 2019 ‘Sunday Times’ Young Writer of the Year award.
