Dr Beatrice Hitchman's research sits at the intersection of critical and creative writing. Her creative outputs to date focus on gender, queer writing and historical fiction, and her critical work focuses on concepts of 'voice', endings and writing the remote past.
Her first novel, Petite Mort (Serpent's Tail, 2013) was nominated for the Authors' Club Best First Novel Prize, the Polari Prize, the HWA Debut Novel Prize and the Desmond Elliott Prize, and serialised as a ten-part Radio 4 drama. Her second novel, All of You Every Single One, considers ideas of queer family (Serpent's Tail, 2021) will be published in the USA in 2022.
