Susan Fletcher & Lucy Flannery

Glencoe in Scotland

Susan Fletcher considers outsiderhood in life and fiction, and Lucy Flannery writes a novel by mistake. Susan Fletcher explores the experience of outsiderhood, both physical and social, and its influence on her writing, and wonders whether readers, too, are increasingly recognising themselves in outsider protagonists. Lucy Flannery describes how an idle moment on twitter led to her accidentally writing a novel, and how the process of doing so raised old demons about her right to be an author.
