Project

During my stay at Faber I intend to work on a collection of creative non-fiction essays entitled 'A Little Journey Into The Unkown'. This project blurs the lines between fiction and non-fiction as it recounts a 9 week trip around Europe towards the tail-end of 2021.

Each essay focuses on a particular city and the people encountered in these cities. Rather than acting as a typical travel memoir, this collection focuses entirely on the people met along the way, highlighting how essential other people are to create meaningful experiences.
