Sean Z Fitzgerald

Writer. Joined LPP in 2019.

Originally from Liverpool, I now live in the southwest of England. I hold a PhD in creative writing practice from the University of Winchester, England. My thesis topic: ‘Writing Genetic Science-Inspired Fiction in Contemporary Society’. This concentrates on the contextualisation and practice of writing genetic-fiction (‘gene-fiction’). The main focus of the creative practice element of my research has been to produce a collection of novelettes and novellas that explore and speculate through contemporary and near-future fiction, the possible impacts and consequences of manipulating genetic code.
