Bridget Whelan

Novelist and prize-winning short story writer, Bridget Whelan became a lecturer at Goldsmiths just two years after graduating from the college’s Masters programme in creative writing.

At the heart of her debut novel  A GOOD CONFESSION - set in the 1960s  – is a love affair that threatens to crash through the cultural and religious taboos of the London Irish community. It was described by Daily Mirror columnist Miriam Stoppard “an unputdownable, compelling love story about the conflict between passion and duty.”

Bridget has gone on to teach creative writing in a wide variety of locations from adult education institutes to museums and art galleries. While writer in Residence at a community centre serving the unemployed, she produced a sell-out anthology and edited a 200 page Heritage-funded history of a Brighton neighbourhood.
