Elanor writes novels and short stories, teaches fiction and creative writing to postgraduates, and desk edits the Law Reports. After practicing commercial law in London and South East Asia, she reported English and European law for The Times and the Incorporated Council of Law Reporting.

Elanor completed an RLF fellowship at the LSE in 2018, and has been Senior Teaching Fellow for the Writing Masters at Warwick University. Her short stories are published in Europe and the US. Her first novel, Every Contact Leaves A Trace, was published in the UK, the US and in translation, and longlisted for the Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award. Silver and Salt was published in April, 2017, and Slack-Tide in January, 2019.

Elanor’s teaching technique is tailored to the individual or group concerned, with pair, solo and group work. Drawing on her background in law, she is especially good at helping academics to write clearly, and to edit their work with precision. As a novelist, she enjoys working with academics to find their voice, and to show them ways to stick with a project to completion.
