Jessica Barratt – Surrey Muse

Jessica Barratt is a literary fiction enthusiast whose work often concerns themes of alienation, technological advancement, and the psycho-social boundaries of memory. Her work first received recognition in 2013, when ‘Loops’, an early short story, became a Flo Decoteau Creative Writing Award winner and later received publication with The Wanderer Online. Other works have appeared in Flamingo, MUSe Journal, Prism International, and the Bolo Tie Collective Anthology, while some of her more journalistic material has found home with The Yards Newsmagazine, where she had the pleasure of being an editorial intern, and Invest in Alberta. These days, Jessica spends her time in her home office writing for others, while also finding time to write for herself. She self-publishes short stories through The (Almost) Daily, and is currently in the process of finalizing one of her three ongoing novel-length manuscripts, tentatively titled, Vast.
