Writer in Residence – Peter McAllister

Peter McAllister worked for many years in London PR and Advertising agencies as a creative/copywriter. He went on to run a successful art dealership for nearly a decade, coaching artists through their careers and practice in his capacity as Creative Director. Returning to education later in life, he studied English Literature at The University of Cambridge and was awarded a Distinction for his MA in Creative Writing at The University of Hull.

Peter’s writing blurs the boundary between the novel and short story collection; it builds layers of characterisation through linked stories that result in profound moments of self realisation and/or dramatic action. He was shortlisted in the Hammond House International Literary Prize and the Ironclad Creative Awards in 2023. His short stories and poems have appeared online, in print journals and in numerous anthologies and his debut book is slated for publication in 2024. Peter is also a committee member for the Penzance Literary Festival.
