Jacqui Pack

Jacqui has recently set up her own website.  Please visit http://jacquipack.jimdo.com/ for all her latest news.



Jacqui has been writing since 2006, producing short stories, flash fiction and poetry.  In 2007 she began studying with the Open University, passing their Creative Writing and Advanced Creative Writing courses with Distinction, earning a Diploma in Literature and Creative Writing, a Certificate in Humanities and, in 2012, graduating with a BA (Hons) Humanities with Creative Writing, First-class.  Since September 2012 she has been taking part in the University of Chichester's Creative Writing MA programme.


Living in the south of England, Jacqui is married with two children and one dog, and uses the time everyone else is out of the house to juggle creative writing, studying, dog walking and, reluctantly, the housework.
