Guy Mankowski

Guy Mankowski was raised on the Isle of Wight. He was singer in Alba Nova, a band who were described by Gigwise as 'mythical and evocative'. He trained as a psychologist at The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability in London. The first draft of his debut novel, The Intimates, was written when he was 21. It was chosen as a 'Must Read' title by New Writing North's Read Regional campaign. His second novel, Letters from Yelena, was researched in the world of Russian ballet after he was awarded an Arts Council Literature Grant. He was one of the first English people to be given access to The Vaganova Academy, perhaps the most prestigious ballet school in the world. The novel was adapted for the stage and used in GCSE training material by Osiris Educational. How I Left The National Grid was written as part of a Creative Writing PhD at Northumbria University, for which he was awarded a full studentship. He was also awarded a Northern Film and Media Award for a comedy script he co-wrote with Manchester comedian Gregory Fox. He can be followed on Twitter @Gmankow.
