Kate Pullinger is the first author to have been asked to speak at both
the Edinburgh Book Festival and the city's games festival EIEF. Her
most recent project is the award-winning series of multimedia short
stories, Inanimate Alice. At this Salon Kate will present the English

her other work. She is a Reader in Creative Writing and New Media at

Centre where she spent a year looking at new forms of online
narrative. Since then she has continued to experiment and develop
digital fiction projects, including The Breathing Wall, a full-length
narrative that uses a pioneering piece of software to allow the story
to respond to the reader's rate of breathing.

Her print books include the novels 'Weird Sister' and 'The Last Time I
Saw Jane' as well as the novel of the film 'The Piano'. Her latest
book, 'A Little Stranger', received excellent reviews on its
publication in January of this year. Her first play for radio, 'The
Egyptian Collection' was critically acclaimed, following the recent
national broadcast. She currently teaches on the Masters degree in
Creative Writing and New Media at De Montfort University, Leicester.
