Naomi Alderman (1974-) is a prize winning author of novels and short stories and a graduate of the MA in Creative Writing (Prose). In 2006, Alderman won the Orange Award for New Writers with her debut novel, Disobedience, and in 2007 was named as Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year. She was included in Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists (2013). Alderman is also a journalist, online games writer and a broadcaster and was mentored by Margaret Atwood as part of the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative.

Alderman has deposited her archive with UEA (on loan). It contains notebooks and drafts of manuscripts and will be catalogued over the coming months.

"I'm delighted that my archive will be stored at UEA. I have very happy memories of my year of MA study, which really changed my life, helping to form my writing and my working habits. Many of my papers relate to my time there - and it seems the natural home for them. I'm thrilled to be in such distinguished company, and to be working with a team who are helping to make sense of the objects and papers of my life.”
