Warwick Thursdays - Gonzalo Garcia Ceron and Preti Taneja
Writers' Room G08 Millburn House

Gonzalo Garcia Ceron studied English and American Literature at the University of Kent, where he also taught Creative Writing. He is now a Teaching Fellow in the Warwick Writing Programme. His first novel, We Are The End, reflects his interest in the relationship between video games, digital culture, and the construction of narrative. It is published by Galley Beggar Press and has been shortlisted for the EIBF First Book Award 2017.

Preti Taneja's debut novel We That Are Young, a response both to King Lear and to the rising religious fascism of contemporary India, is published by Galley Beggar Press. Her novella Kumkum Malhotra won the Gatehouse Press New Fiction Prize in 2014 and she writes for the Guardian, the New Statesman, and Index, among other journals. Preti is a BBC/AHRC New Generation Thinker and a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow at Warwick University. After a decade of reporting on minority and refugee rights in Jordan, Sweden, East Africa and the Balkans, she is now investigating the protection of cultural rights in conflict and post-conflict situations.
