I am Richard V. Hirst, an office worker based in Manchester and, improbably, an award-winning writer. Hello.
I'm the co-author of and The Night Visitors, a novella told entirely via an exchange of emails, and Bus Station: Unbound, a choose-your-own-adventure-style novel set in Preston Bus Station.
I'm also one of the founders of Curious Tales, an independent publisher. I've had my work published in the Big Issue, Time Out and the Guardian amongst others.
If you'd like to get in touch with me you can do so by emailing: richardvhirst ['at' symbol] gmail ['dot' icon] com
I'm always interested in writing projects, teaching opportunities, public readings and emails from mysterious strangers.
What am I reading right now?
