Dani Redd

Dani Redd has an MA in Creative Writing and a PhD in Creative and Critical writing from the University of East Anglia. She studied representations of islands in postcolonial and feminist fiction. This involved research trips to some of Europe’s remoter islands, including Spitsbergen, in the Arctic Circle.

Upon finishing her PhD, Dani spent two years living in India and working as a freelance travel writer. She has now returned to Norwich, and works as the editor for Great British Food (a wonderful job that allows her to read recipes all day).

Dani writes fiction, creative nonfiction, academic articles and magazine features. She was longlisted for the Lucy Cavendish Prize in 2020 and won third place for Hinterland Journal’s Creative Non Fiction Prize in 2019. She won Words & Women’s inaugural short fiction competition in 2014, and was highly commended again in 2016. You’ll find her work scattered across various publications ranging from viral travel site Culture Trip to Island Studies Journal, which is devoted to researchers studying small islands.
