Amy Mackelden is a writer based in Newcastle upon Tyne. She runs Feminist Trash TV & Pop Culture blog Clarissa Explains Fuck All with writer-supremo Amy Roberts, is one of the co-founders of poetry magazine Butcher’s Dog, and won a Northern Promise Award in 2011.

She co-edited this year’s National Flash Fiction Day anthology, ‘Eating My Words’, and wrote a Hannibal-inspired story for it.

Her story ‘Meredith’ came 3rd in the NFFD Micro-Fiction competition 2012:

On Grey’s Anatomy, everyone’s slept with everybody, and although real life is complicated, I’m sure it’s not that complicated, or if it is then everyone’s fucking without me, doing it secretly, when I’m at Pilates, or sleeping between ten and eight.
