Simon Linter Short Biography

I have been writing stories as long as I can remember. When I was around 7 years old, I wrote a short story called Signs in the Jungle, and was on my way to writing my first book Monster from Mars by age 9.

I starting working for local newspapers in 1994 and have worked mostly within the media sector.

To date, I have written two full length novels, one nonfiction book, a book of short stories, and been featured in short story anthologies as well as having some poetry published.

I am currently working on my next novel and write poetry when my prose fails me.

Hire me

I started working as a writer in 1994 writing articles for local newspapers in my hometown. During the years 1996 to 2003 I wrote reviews and articles for several UK publications including IT and lifestyle magazines. I moved to Sweden in 2003 and started learning Swedish sporadically culminating in a Swedish as a second language (SASB) qualification in 2012. During my time spent in Gothenburg (2003-2008) I wrote for The Monthly Magazine and produced my own Swedish Islands guide to the archipelago. I moved to Stockholm in 2008 for a copywriting position where I stayed for four years. After this I worked freelance working as a copywriter for many small and large companies, producing copy or proofreading existing copy.

Creative writing

In 2012 I started to study creative writing and have continued to do so up until the present time. I have worked as a book translator (Swedish to English) for a publisher as well as a proofreader and editor for other nonfiction and short story projects. I have had work published in Two Thirds North and Aesthetica Magazine’s Creative Writing Annual, and have published several books including novels, a memoir, and short stories. I have also worked for Bonnier Education producing short stories and articles for their Clio portal.


I have a MA in Creative Writing, a BA in English Literature (which included a module in creative writing) and a BSc in International Relations. I have also studied Media (including a module in visual narratives and production).
