Gillian Brownson

Gill is a Writer working both in the commercial literature market (Children's and Middle Grade) and with the community, a role she is very passionate about.

Most of her writing projects to date are linked to small scale Theatre or large Scale multi-disciplinary Arts events, though she also produces Poetry for and with community groups such as schools and in residential care homes, using words as a powerful engagement tool.

Her Middle Grade manuscript, 'Darkwhistle & the Haunted River' was long listed for the Bloomsbury New Children's Author prize.

Her children's story in rhyme 'The Mermaid's Purse' was recently published in Rhaw magazine for North Wales.

As a Welsh writer, Gill writes bi-lingually when commissioned to do so, but her first writing language is English.

Gill also works extensively as a Storyteller, running a Young Creatives programme for Venue Cymru in North Wales, and also runs the National Young Storytellers' Festival of Wales.

Gill is currently seeking representation by an agent.

Darkwhistle & the Haunted River 

Middle grade Fiction

Mrs Miasamble hardly ever spoke at all, which meant nobody else in Orphanium did either. The other mice would whisper sometimes, but they didn’t say anything tremendously important, or friendly, so I preferred instead to talk to the others, the old ones. Not older mice. No. I mean the old ones - dead gloomsters who lived in the shadows of the tunnel walls. I’ve always been a spooky sort of someone, who can see and hear the dead, and I thought myself lucky to have their company, if you can call it that. The other mice tormented me of course. They could never see who I was talking to. I didn’t particularly care that they thought I was odd though. As far as I could see, that was a good thing.
