Chris Woolfrey portrait
My hair is shorter now.

Born in the UK (near London), I moved to the Netherlands in 2014 and have lived here since.

Writing is my stock in trade. My first piece of writing (self-published) was written aged 7, about a girl and boy falling into a magical chest.

Riddled with grammatical errors, no publisher would take it. The stockist has thrown the master copy away.

Putting that setback aside, I’ve worked as a writer, editor and journalist for the last eight years.

My interest in online writing is more than commercial: for my Master’s degree thesis [9.5MB] I wrote about the relationship between the internet and literature.

I’m sincerely interested in how writing will be shaped by changes in technology; I’m equally interested in how the history of writing can shape technology as it develops.
