MSt News: Daisy Johnson wins the 2014 AM Heath Prize

The winner of this year’s AM Heath Prize for fiction by an MSt student is Daisy Johnson.

This prize, offered by one of London’s most prestigious and long-established literary agencies, is awarded annually for the best piece of fiction written by a graduating student of the MSt.

Victoria Hobbs of the AM Heath Agency had this to say about her work:

“Daisy Johnson’s stories are brave and unusual – writing with the very best kind of inventive ambition. From the striking opening image of headless eels in ‘Starver’, to the eerie poise of the fox at the end of ‘There Was A Fox In the Bedroom’, I was hooked. I am very much looking forward to seeing what this writer does next.”

Congratulations, Daisy!
