Ali Cargill has previously published a novel for young adults (‘Koff, 2013) and a study guide on environmental theory to support the A level English curriculum (Ecocritical Interpretation, 2016). She wrote the latest York Notes online A level revision resources for King Lear and co-wrote the York Notes A Level print study guide for The Handmaid’s Tale. Most recently, she worked with a brain-injured client to write his memoir.
She is currently in her third year as a PhD Researcher in Creative Writing with the University of Hull. Ali describes her PhD novel, working title Hedgewicche, as postmodern, postfeminist nature Gothic. In Hedgewicche she experiments with form, using a mix of third person subjective and play script, controlled by an intrusive hedgewitch narrator.
