We are creatures of habit. We are creatures of hope. But most of all we are creatures of story. The fundamental narrative arc is woven out of the structure of our very lives - introduction, build-up, climax, denouement. We live out our tales as hero, nemesis, sidekick, love interest, parent, child, teacher. The Maiden. The Mother. The Crone. The archetypes are like ghosts that catch up to us, possess us and shape our stories, until we wrestle them to a point of submission and we can become The Writer; the author of our own destiny.
Georgia Wilder is studying for a BA in Humanities, majoring in Creative Writing and French with the Open University. She has been writing since she was a small child and spent many years in theatre; front-of-house, back stage, on stage – whatever she could get away with. One of her short stories was published in an anthology by Canongate at the beginning of the century. Whilst continuing with her practice as a poet and fictionalist, she is expanding her creative horizons to include screenwriting.
