Rachelle Atalla's headshot

I am a novelist, short story writer and screenwriter based in Glasgow. My debut novel The Pharmacist will be published by Hodder & Stoughton in 2022, with a second novel scheduled for the following year. I was a participant of Scottish Film & Talent Network’s Write4film programme and their Scottish Shorts Development scheme. My short film Trifle was commissioned by SFTN and will premier at Manchester Film Festival in 2021. My short stories have been published in numerous literary anthologies and I also co-edit New Writing Scotland. I am available for readings, residencies, mentoring and workshops across Scotland.
