Judith Allnatt

Deepings Literary Festival 2019 

Venue: Deepings Library

Judith Allnatt is an acclaimed short story writer and novelist. Her novel based on John Clare’s family, The Poet’s Wife, was shortlisted for the East Midlands Book Award. Other works have been shortlisted for the Portico Prize for Literature, featured as a Radio 5 Live Book of the Month, selected for the Commonwealth Short Story Awards, and broadcast on Radio 4. Her third novel, The Moon Field, described by The Times as ‘deeply moving’, is set in the First World War and was featured on the BBC News Channel’s ‘Meet the Author’.

Judith’s latest novel, The Silk Factory, is an eerie story of love and memory drawing on both the Luddite weavers’ rebellions in the nineteenth century and a modern day haunting. Judith lectures widely on Creative Writing and is a Royal Literary Fund Fellow. She lives with her family in Northamptonshire and is working on her fifth novel.
