Peter Cowlam


Peter Cowlam is a freelance editor and the author of literary fiction, plays and poetry. His first novel was published in 1998. Enthusiastically received by Robert McCrum reviewing in The Observer, Electric Letters Z is a gentle satire on London literary life of the mid-1990s. His brief stint as a commissioning editor saw two issues of The Finger, a journal of politics, literature and culture.

His most recent expedition into fiction is his novella Marisa, a heady concoction of first love recalled. His latest play, Who’s Afraid of the Booker Prize?, although published (by New Theatre Publications) is looking for its first full performance. His poems have appeared widely in online and print journals, and some are available in MP3 format (such as that at the following page)
