Short story writers: Beverley Sims

Beverley Sims spent a childhood between the Peak District hills and the suburbs of Manchester, England and has had a variety of jobs, including poodle parlour dog groomer, wine promoter and British Sign Language communicator. She eventually took a degree in Graphic Design at John Moores University, Liverpool.

In 1997 she set up a small Visual and Performing Arts company in Cambridgeshire, running workshops for museums, schools and local community groups, and eventually moved into full-time employment with Lincolnshire children’s library services.

After a few years as Visual and Performing Arts Curriculum Leader for Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council and a brief flirtation with Adult Learning Inspectorates and paperclips, she moved to Italy in 2004.

To date she has had a number of poems published and currently keeps the wolf from the door by copywriting and teaching English as a Foreign Language. She is also working on ’Piano, Piano’, an account of her early experiences in Italy. Beverley lives in a small hilltop town south of Rome, with her dog Reuben, who is not a poodle.

Beverley's short story Tracks was a runner up in the Short Story Radio Competition winter 2008/2009.
