MEET THE TEAM
Fija Callaghan is an author, poet, and a content editor with The History Quill. She is also The History Quill’s community manager. Her work has been shortlisted and longlisted for a number of short story prizes, and you can find her writing in publications like Gingerbread House, Crow & Cross Keys, Corvid Queen, and Mythic Magazine. When not writing or helping other writers get the best out of their work, she can be found haunting her local bookshops or watching the tide come in.
If Fija were stranded on a desert island, the two historical novels she would want with her are Kerri Maher’s The Paris Bookseller and Mary Ann Shaffer’s The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
