December 2021: Recipient 016, Molly Gough

We’re happy to be ending 2021 by announcing that the The White Pube Writers Grant’s 16th recipient is Molly Gough @mollyelizagough. Molly emailed us some examples of her writing but we have actually been subscribed to her mailing list for years. She sends out very short pieces of writing where the language is physical, fast, undressed. And her hope now is to bring all these pieces together into the shape of a book - which, as long time readers, is something that we would love to see.


Molly Gough is a British writer, currently living in the West Midlands. Her genre-bending prose sits on the proverbial fence between memoir writings and flash fiction. Presently she runs a bi-weekly mailing list called Press & Release where she sends out the experimental writing to subscribers, interrupting the monotony of work emails and day to day admin. They are quick, intimate and vulnerable, exploring themes of desire, shame, sexuality and loss. Molly is currently working on a larger collection of her writings with the aim for it to become a book.
