Foldable Memories – Alexandria Meinecke


Photography by: Melissa Lewis.


‘Originally I wanted to write fiction… but it took one fiction class to realise I’m horrible at it… I can’t convince myself of the believability of the charcters in a story. With non-fiction, I don’t have that problem… it happened.’

Alexandria Meinecke came all the way from San Francisco to the small city of Lancaster to study an MA in Creative Writing. Her reviews had been publised by the Ignation Literary Journal and 7×7 magazine, but non-fiction is her preferred genre. Alexandria wants to renovate it by experimenting with formats… creating maps and even foldable designs!

Many thanks to our meticulous editor, Terry Garanhel and to the founder and sponsor of the programme, Yvonne Battle-Felton. And, of course, to  Alexandra Meinecke. It seems your books are going to be the non-fictional version of House of Leaves, and we’re looking forward to read them!
