Writer Tania Hershman recently visited the campus at the University of St Mark & St John as part of the visiting writers series.

After making a living for 13 years as a science journalist, writing for publications such as 'WIRED' and 'New Scientist', Tania Hershman turned her attention to the short story. Published by Salt Fiction, Tania’s first short story collection, 'The White Road', was commended in the Orange Prize for New Writers in 2009. A second collection,' My Mother was an Upright Piano', was published by Tangent books in 2012.

With numerous other publications in anthologies, other prizes, and various radio broadcasts, Tania is currently writer-in-residence in the Science Faculty at Bristol University, and - with funding from the Arts Council - is now working on a new collection of short stories inspired by spending time in a biochemistry lab.
