Piers Pennington

The Christmas Spirit

Piers Pennington studied Comparative Literature at the University of East Anglia. He is an occasional contributor to the football magazine When Saturday Comes and his articles have been included in the anthologies Power, Corruption and Pies and Always Next Year.  For the past ten years he has pursued an interest in short story writing and is a founder member of the writers’ collective D-Fen, who aspire to write a new story every two weeks. He now lives in blissful retirement with his wife, daughter and cat.

Piers wrote one of the stories we recorded for Story Friday A Breath of Fresh Air earlier this year. If you’d like to get a flavour of his writing, you can watch his story Flouting read by Bryn Holding here.
