Anne Louise Avery: European Editor

“The most powerful travel writing is not so much the art of empirical description as that of the translation of the individual experience into the universal.”

Anne Louise Avery is a writer and art historian based in Oxford. Her latest book, Reynard the Fox was published by the Bodleian Library and was described by The Wall Street Journal as “a tour de force of storytelling.” In 2019, she won the Fortnum & Mason inaugural short-story competition, and this year was awarded a full grant from the Society of Authors for her next novel, which will be released in 2023. She is a passionate European and will be encouraging and commissioning new, diverse voices from across Europe.
