Zoe Lambert is a writer from Manchester. She lectures in Creative Writing at Lancaster University, teaching undergrad and postgrad modules in the short story.

She publishes short stories in a variety of publications, and is currently working on a speculative novel, The New Humans. She is represented by Sam Copeland at Rogers, Coleridge and White.

Her collection of short stories, The War Tour, (often misheard as The Wall Tour) was published in 2012 by Comma Press, and was shortlisted for the Edge Hill Prize for short stories. One of the stories from that collection appeared in the Independent on Sunday.

Zoe’s short stories have been been published in a number of Comma Press anthologies, the latest in Resist: Stories of Uprising, an anthology of stories based on real-life acts of resistance throughout history.

She is currently exploring themes of caring and chronic illness in her short fiction. She ran a recent writing project with young carers in Manchester, their work published by Writing on the Wall.
