Divya Ghelani /

Divya Ghelani writes short stories, articles, and novels. She is Writer, Researcher, and Co-Curator for a UK-based exhibition about a forgotten 1974 Asian Worker Strike at The Imperial Typewriter Co. in England. She is a graduate of The University of East Anglia's Creative Writing MA and is working on the completion of her debut novel, Night School, with The Good Literary Agency. It is the recipient of a Writing East Midlands Mentorship, a Literary Consultancy Mentorship, and an Arts Council Grant. It was shortlisted for PRH #WriteNowLive, longlisted for the 2016 Deborah Rogers Foundation Writers' Award, longlisted for the SI Leeds Literary Prize, and an early draft received an honorary mention in the Harry Bowling Prize for New Writing. The opening of Night School can be found in Issue 1 of The Good Journal. I'm editing the book while researching an ACE-funded and HLF-funded project about the Imperial Typewriter Strike in Leicester May 1974.
