Josephine is a Swedish-English Writer from Eskilstuna, Sweden. She has a BA in English from the University of Exeter and an MA in Creative Writing from the University of Birmingham. She's been writing stories in Swedish ever since she learnt how to read, but didn't start writing seriously in English until her first year at University, age 19. 'Homo Anisoptera', her first completed short story at university, became highly commended in a competition and was then published by Dream Catcher Magazine in 2016. Since then, Josephine's work has been published in a number of online and print journals. She's won two short story competitions, been runner-up once, highly commended twice, and been awarded two bursaries. She currently lives in Edinburgh where she is starting her first year as a newly qualified English teacher. When not writing, she plays the violin and goes hiking in the mountains.
