The Novel Voices series features Ellah P Wakatama (Senior Research Fellow) in conversation with debut authors about their craft and the journey to shaping their first, published full body of work. These works will span across genres as the series seeks to explore a range of narratives that reflect the new voices that have and will be shaping the literary landscape of 2021.
The second online event in the series welcomes Micaiah Johnson. Micaiah was raised in California’s Mojave Desert surrounded by trees named Joshua and women who told stories. She received her Bachelor of Arts in creative writing from the University of California, Riverside and her Master of Fine Arts in fiction from Rutgers-Camden. She now studies American Literature at Vanderbilt University where she focuses on critical race theory… and automatons. Her debut novel, The Space Between Worlds, from Hodder in the UK and Crown in the US, is a science-fiction novel that uses the concept of the multiverse to examine privilege.
This event is presented in partnership with Creative Manchester and the Centre for New Writing.
