Biography

Molly Flatt is a journalist who writes about the impact of technology on publishing, culture and identity. Having grown up as half internet-obsessed geek, half over-imaginative hedgerow-dweller, she read English Literature at university, enjoyed a brief and inglorious stint as an actress slash temp, then spent her twenties working at a word of mouth marketing agency, teaching middle-aged men in suits to be afraid of Twitter, and giving presentations in far flung places alongside gurus who were being paid considerably more than her.

She is now Associate Editor for FutureBook, Digital Editor for Pheonix magazine and Associate Editor for the Memo, and writes regularly for publications such as the BBC and The Guardian. Her debut novel was begun on the six-month Faber Academy 'Writing a Novel' course. She lives in London with her husband and daughter, but still spends as much time as possible in hedgerows.
