Sonya is a writer with a background in theatre and performance. She currently delivers writing projects for rural communities in Lincolnshire, with Transported Arts and Writing East Midlands. She enjoys using writing as a tool to unlock memories or to record personal experiences, and frequently works with people who wouldn’t describe themselves as writers.
Sonya has an MA in Creative Writing from Hull University and she will be a PhD candidate for the next few years, researching unrecorded stories from family histories.
She is also the owner of a small wood-fired bakery in the middle of nowhere.
‘Working with the young writers at First Story continues to inspire me to find new and bold ways to engage their creativity. Their ability to seize a challenge and their determination to write, really push me to keep developing my own craft.’Sonya Hundal
