Dr Myna Trustram

I have worked in England for many years as a historian, curator and academic. In 2021 I stopped paid work in institutions and now focus on being a writer. I write short experimental essays in which I call upon literary and academic forms to consider themes such as mourning, loss and separation. 

Keywords: Mourning, hospital, writing.
