Dutch writer Gregor Verwijmeren studied Language and Culture Studies at Utrecht University and guitar at the conservatory in the same town. He published fiction in – among others – De Gidsand Flash: The International Short-Short Story Magazine. In 2018 De vorm van geluid (The shape of sound) was published by Van Oorschot, the oldest surviving independent publisher in the Netherlands; it is the first novel about tinnitus (and music and sounds) published by a mainstream publishing house. At Cove Park Gregor will be working on his second novel, for which he received a grant from the Dutch Foundation for Literature. Carrying the working title Diaspora 22, it’s an ambitious and adventurous climate change novel that focuses on a family of four and takes place in The Netherlands, Germany and The Alps. http://gregorverwijmeren.nl/en/home-en/
