Stephen Downes

Stephen Downes was this year awarded a PhD in creative writing from Monash University. His thesis investigates the influence of the uncanny and nostalgia on the prose fictions of the German writer W. G. Sebald. He has published some dozen non-fiction books, and a few have won prizes and been translated. His short story ‘Anniversary’ was selected for the UNESCO Cities of Literature anthology A Tale of Four Cities. Also a short story, ‘The Sausage Caper’ was shortlisted for the 2018 British Bridport Short Story Prize.
