Breanne Mc Ivor, writer

Breanne Mc Ivor was born and raised in west Trinidad 🇹🇹. She is a national scholarship winner who studied English at the Universities of Cambridge and Edinburgh before returning home. Breanne has been shortlisted for the Commonwealth Short Story Prize, the Glimmer Train Fiction Open, the Fish One-Page Prize and the Derek Walcott Writing Prize. In 2015, she won The Caribbean Writer’s David Hough Literary Prize. Where There Are Monsters is her first short story collection.

Breanne is the co-founder of the People’s Republic of Writing (PROW), a group created out of the belief that writing belongs to everyone. The group is composed of a close-knit community of writers who support one another in their literary journeys. Breanne currently works as the Value Generation Officer at the American Chamber of Commerce of Trinidad and Tobago (AMCHAM T&T). In her free time, Breanne practices yoga, reads voraciously, plays with her puppies, spends time with her family and friends and watches football – she is an avid Arsenal fan.

Breanne is working on her first novel.
