Simon Wroe

by Jack Hadley

Simon Wroe’s first novel Chop Chop was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award, longlisted for Desmond Elliott Prize and the winner of a Betty Trask Award. His second novel, Here Comes Trouble, was published in April 2017 and was shortlisted for the Everyman Bollinger Wodehouse prize. He writes books and arts reviews for The Economist and features for The Guardian.

‘Simon is a phenomenal tutor. I was continually impressed with his insightful feedback on a range of genres and his ability to get to the heart of literary matters so quickly. It felt like he intuitively understood what I was trying to do, even when I was unable to articulate it myself.’  Diane Miller, six-month novel-writing course
