Fritha Waters lives and writes in Norfolk. She survived Dartington College of Arts and completed a degree in Performance Writing, like all former Dartington students, she also mourns the loss of the college. Fritha was lucky enough to win the Traverse Unpublished Writers Jam session a good few years ago now, but still hangs onto the memory. Chapman Magazine in Edinburgh published a short story and then after the intervention of small people, a novel finally emerged. 'Cameo' is available from all good websites. She still writes, although there is not enough hours in the day.
