Will Nicoll

Will Nicoll is a British writer and journalist with eclectic tastes, who has contributed features to newspapers and magazines like The Spectator, The Telegraph, Esquire (UK/Weekly), Men’s Health, Women’s Health and Vice. His poetry was commended for the 2013 Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine, and his short-stories have appeared in journals like Michael Hulse’s Warwick Review. Will’s essays were short-listed for The Shiva Naipaul Memorial Prize, in both 2012 and 2013. As the award is given not for “conventional” travel-writing, but “the most acute and profound observation of a culture alien to the writer,” both of Will’s entries have focused on journeys which he made with homeless people, whose lives intertwine on the fringes of society. Will’s first piece (‘What’s Waiting at Elm Tree Loan’) for The Spectator can be read here, while his second (‘The Shivering Denizens of His Mad Realm’) is published in the Los Angeles Review of Books. Will lives in Edinburgh & London, and is represented by Rochelle Stevens & Co. Twitter: @williampnicoll; Email: will [at] willnicoll.co.uk; Website: willnicoll.co.uk
