Julie Primon is an author currently undertaking her PhD at Cardiff University. Her thesis, Like a River Towards the Sea: Writing the Unfamiliar, includes a historical novel set in 1940's Italy, loosely based on her grandmother's own story. Julie enjoys exploring the dynamics of human relationships in her writing; she believes it is connections and exchanges between people that give life its richness and colour. She is a French native who teaches creative writing and French, and writes both prose and poetry –her poem Erasure was recently published in the Bangor Literary Journal and her flash fiction was shortlisted in the University of Winchester Writer’s Festival.
