Jacqueline Downs is a writer and editor living in Crystal Palace (not the actual palace, though). Her short stories have been published on Ether and Smokebox, and read at many events, including Liars’ League, Storytails, White Rabbit’s Are You Sitting Comfortably?, Story Studio and Stand-up Tragedy. She is a regular contributor to the women’s literary website For Books’ Sake, tells true stories of debauchery and misery at Spark London, and in May 2012 read in Manchester as a finalist in the Bad Language national flash fiction competition. Her newest story, Red, appears in Issue 6 of Open Pen (out September 2012), and Stations, an anthology of stories about the Overground to be published by Arachne Press in November 2012, will feature a ghost story set in SE19. She also mixes a mean old-fashioned. A collection of her writing can be found on her website, Jacqueline Downs Is Reading And Writing.
