W.B. Gooderham

I’m a freelance writer (published in The Guardian, The Observer, Time Out, Tank Magazine and Wasafiri), English tutor, and co-run the Tufnell Park Film Club.

At the moment most of my writing tends to be for the international literary magazine Wasafiri  (whose articles aren’t available on-line) and I’ve recently contributed essays to the Modern Books‘ anthology series, Literary Landscapes (2018) and Literary Journeys (to be published 2020).

My Other Blog, Three Score & Ten, is currently doing the rounds as (cough) a piece of conceptual art and is on the look out for a publisher.

In 2018 my short story ‘Flat White’ was shortlisted for Comma Press’s Dinesh Allirajah Prize for Short Fiction.

Below is a selection of my writing (mostly for the Guardian unless stated otherwise). The complete list of Guardian articles can be accessed via my Guardian profile.

Miscellaneous – in a past life I wrote and recorded music in the bands Baptiste & Kelman. Also did some Other Stuff. Here it all be (for better or worse).

* Naturally, some songs are better than others. For the record, I’m (still!) fairly pleased with A New Career in a New Town, Icarus, Kissing With Your Eyes Open, A Worthy Grudge is a Beautiful Thing, Tired Bodies and Confessions of a Clumsy Man.

** Ditto. Recommended “cuts” (ugh): The Happiest Man Alive, These Days, Kicking Cans All The Way Home, Some Things Never Work Out and You’re Still Everything To Me.
