Our writers mean business

Haleh Agar

Haleh was born and raised with her two sisters in Canada. She left to teach English Literature at international schools in Bahrain, Singapore and most recently London, where she now lives. Haleh has been published in literary magazines and journals, including Mslexia, Viva Magazine, Fincham Press and Lamplight Magazine. She won the Brighton Prize for a piece of flash fiction, and her narrative essay ‘On Writing Ethnic Stories’ won the London Magazine’s inaugural essay competition.

Out of Touch

Out of Touch is the story of estranged siblings Ava and Michael, and their father Lee, who neither has seen in twenty years. When Lee writes to say he’s dying and wants to meet, he throws their lives into turmoil. The siblings return home to London – Ava from her mother’s bungalow in rural Derbyshire, and Michael from New York, where he has made a new life for himself with his wife and son. There, they must confront the trauma of their childhood, including the scandal that led Lee – once the esteemed editor of a London newspaper – to flee the country.
