Waterstones Write and Raise 2018
Elina’s short story ‘Shadowed Haven’ was shortlisted for Waterstones Write and Raise 2018. Shortlisted entrants were invited to an award ceremony at Waterstones on 24 January 2019, where the winner was announced. All proceeds from the event were donated to the winner’s chosen charity, Shelter – a very worthy cause.
Elina’s flash fiction series ‘Hidden Moments’ was released as part of an anthology of works by University of Brighton students. The book launch event, held in Brighton, took place on Wednesday 9 January 2019. Book sales raised £190 for local charity Sussex Homeless Support.
‘Hidden Moments’ is a depiction of various moments in the life of someone living with dementia. Each story in the series can be read as a stand-alone piece or in conjunction with the remainder of the series.
