Jacob Ross; An Interview

Passionate elucidations of publishing, intelligent insights, and handy tips and advice for budding writers.

For those who don’t know who you are, could you give a brief introduction as to who you are and what you do?

I’m presently Associate Editor for Fiction at Peepal Tree Press which is the leading independent publisher of Caribbean, African and Asian related fiction in the United Kingdom. I am also a reader and tutor for The Literary Consultancy and run numerous Creative Writing workshops in the UK and abroad.

For several years I was a Judge for the Scott Moncrieff Translation Prize as well as the VS Pritchett and Tom Gallon prizes. My first novel, Pynter Bender, was published in 2008 and before that, two collections of short stories. I have been a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature since 2006.

I now live in Leicester.
